The answers that are given to it will decisively shape the future course of history. In this respect China has one major trump card (the legacy of its revolution), which could allow it to provide one possible model of what  Beyond US Hegemony? needs to be done. For access to the land must be recognized as a basic right for half of humanity, without which it will not have the conditions for survival. This right is ignored by capitalism; it does not even get a mention in the UN Charter of Rights.

The prevailing opinion today is that Asia is overcoming the legacy of underdevelopment due to imperialism and ‘closing the gap’ within the capitalist system, through methods that do not involve a break with that system. Appearances seem to confirm this vision of the future, since over the last quarter of a century Asia has notched up truly remarkable growth rates at a time when the rest of the world has been sliding deeper into stagnation. A linear projection might therefore suggest that we are heading for a renewal of the globalized capitalist system, which will be more balanced in favour of Asia, a capitalism that thereby loses its imperialist character at least in relation to East and South Asia, if not the rest of the third world.
