Finally, the author shows the importance of actively deepening relationships with key global players.

From the Paper:

"The turn of the last century saw tremendous global change including the manifestation of a global market. Although many of the promises of globalization have been fulfilled, its pitfalls and potential problems have only recently surfaced. The United States, which rose to international dominion both financially and politically, faces the greatest challenges in maintaining its edge in the third wave of globalization. Its position of global hegemony is diminishing rapidly. America will no longer be a world superpower unless its policy makers are willing to acknowledge and address the nation's inadequacies. These inadequacies include low educational attainment within the population, inequitable distribution of wealth, insufficient workforce skills upgrades, inadequate critical infrastructure, poor savings, taxation, and expenditure policies, and more."
