Analyst: U.S. to be #1 Economy in 25 Years

Investors who want a peek at the global future need to ask a global expert.  George Friedman is the founder of Stratfor, a geopolitical intelligence firm and author of two books about the global future: “The Next Decade” and “The Next 100 Years,” New York Times bestsellers.

CNBC sat with Friedman for a Q&A to get his thoughts on the world in 25 years, especially what he foresees for America’s future relationships with China, the Middle East and Mexico.

“The United States is clearly going to be the leading economic power. We have one tremendous advantage over other advanced industrial countries. Where the Japanese have over 200 people per square mile, the United States happens about 35, not counting Alaska. There’re tremendous amounts of room to grow, to increase population, so that while other countries will have declining populations, the United States will actually have increasing population.”, says George Friedman.
