The Eagle and The Dragon -- If you're not interested in the ongoing discussion here about the breakdown of the American way of life, feel free to skip this post.

On the other hand, if you are interested in current events, Peak Oil and all the other crises facing the United States and the world now and for the next few decades, I have some fantastic reading for you.

On his blog, James Howard Kunstler recently pointed to a series of articles published by the UK Telegraph titled "America and China: The Eagle and The Dragon." Writer Mick Brown and photographer Alec Soth are documenting, in astonishing detail, where the relationship between the two world powers is, and how things are going in each nation. It's scary, but brilliantly written stuff. So far three parts have been posted in the series, with more to come in the weeks ahead. I'll try to update this post as the series progresses, but here's what's available so far:

America and China: The Eagle and The Dragon: Part One

America and China: The Eagle and The Dragon: Part Two

America and China: The Eagle and The Dragon: Part Three

America and China: The Eagle and The Dragon Part Four

There's about forty pages worth of very good reading so far, and I encourage you to check the series out if you have any interest at all in the state of our world, now and in the near future.

Thanks for the pointer to the Koppel series. I did see him on Jon Stewart promoting it and it looked very interesting.

Damn, my interview with you only made it to number three? We'll have to do it again sometime and make it even more Rogerier!
