I think that the United States and other Western countries are in a political and economic crisis.
I think that political leaders in the Western world must answer these questions.
Does the economic and political crisis mean that the system has failed?
If the system has failed, is this a failure of capitalism, a failure of democracy or both?
If the failure is a failure of capitalism, can the capitalistic system be fixed, or must it be replaced?
If the failure is a failure of democracy, can the democratic system be fixed, or is it doomed?
I don’t expect these questions to be addressed this year or the next, but I don’t think they can be evaded indefinitely. I think there will be some sort of resolution, for good or for ill, within the next 10 years.
