USA is powerful every other country is maitaining the gold reserves in terms of dollars only and each trading country who supplies the materials to USA are doing it in credit. That is why even though the balance of trade
is against USA, it still is the most powerful country.
There is no doubt that currently there is no superpower in the world other than the United States and in fact, no country even comes close to the US in projecting its global influence. One of the leading factors behind the enormous power of US is its military which outcasts any other military force in the world. The defense budget of US is more than the next ten combined which itself signifies the state of defense machine the US possesses.
The current global order which has the US on top was established at the end of World War II, in which allies were the victors and the US benefitted the most among the allies and that resulted in setting up of current global order. US rise as the sole superpower in 1990's with the disintegration of Soviet Union, which was US sole competitor.
So yes it would be factually correct to state that the US is the most powerful country in the world in every aspect.
The United States of America isn’t as powerful as some may think, but those are political reasons and will be getting into in more detail in other places. The USA is considered so powerful because we have a history of sticking our noses in where we don’t belong. We have been fighting in Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan to help end injustices that we see. However, that doesn’t mean that they are injustices to the people living there. We’re also considered so powerful because, for the last few years, we’ve had a powerful leader.
A country is only as strong as their leader. With the election of Donald Trump as president, the wrong kind of powers has been surfacing. We’ve seen white supremacy in the eleven months since he was elected in public than we have since the KKK began and was forced under in the early 1900s.
