Fareed Zakaria, author of The Post-American World, believes the United States must decide how to handle the 21st century multipolar world and should encourage other nations to become major players and stake-holders in this emerging world, rather than trying to compete with them.
Newsweek International editor Fareed Zakaria criticizes the Bush administration for failing to diplomatically and politically engage in destabilizing terrorist organizations (like Hezbollah and the Taliban) in the Middle East.
Fareed Zakaria describes the consequences of America's overly cautious and restrictive policies on issuing visas to international workers: America is losing its image as the place of innovation, adventure, and enterprise, and other nations are taking its place.
