[Comment] Offline: The post-American age

Consider Singapore for a moment. In progress towards the health-related Sustainable Development Goals, Singapore ranks first out of 188 nations (the UK is tenth; the USA, 24th). In measures of the quality of medical care (the Healthcare Access and Quality Index), Singapore ranks 21st (the UK is 30th; the USA, 35th). In this month’s world university rankings, produced by the Times Higher Education, the National University of Singapore (NUS) was 22nd. NUS is now the leading university in Asia. Singapore, all 241 square miles of it, became a sovereign nation in 1965.
