We constantly get deceived about the state of the world and everybody pretends it will get better.
The new world economy trading system will be based on the stockmarket model with business trading exchanges breaking the tradition of loyalty and replacing it with the greed for profit.
Near Monopolistic takeovers will be simpler when the information trading systems are standardised.
It may mean that we have more products and services in the western economy at a cheaper price but the poorer countries and poorer people living in the west will be excluded because of lack of funds and education.
This will cause a massive unemployment as office workers the majority of employees in western economies can't compete with computer technology which runs 24/7.
You can argue that it will improve our standard of living but the experiment is not reversible and with the speed of change being so rapid people will have to adapt very quickly which is stressfull.
Not everybody can come up with new ideas especially if they were not taught when they were younger and a lot of people will fell isolated and useless.Drugs will become more popular then ever before.
You can't make gains without someone else or enviroment suffering losses elsewhere.Just like the stockmarket.
I don't proffess to be an expert but this is my observation.

i can't help but feel the US may go out with a whimper rather than a bang. did you happen to notice that two more large US corporations were bought out by the dutch (a large insurance company and another drug company). this is scary? where did the dutch get all that money/capital for such a small country???????

It's called Globalization. The power elite don't worry about national boundaries or soverignty.
