Since , and up to this day, two main theories of history's unfolding, the circular view and the linear view, clash as far as the future role and position of the USA is concerned. On the one hand, Paul Kennedy's The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers and advocates of the circular theory predict the decline of the USA, as history has shown that all empires that have risen have ultimately fallen.

He concludes that declining countries can experience greater difficulties in balancing their preferences for guns, butter and investments.
