Two prominent US CFR and deep state members, Richard Haas and Charles Kupchan, declare western hegemony for over:
The international system is at a historical inflection point. As Asia continues its economic ascent, two centuries of Western domination of the world, first under Pax Britannica and then under Pax Americana, are coming to an end. The West is losing not only its material dominance but also its ideological sway. Around the world, democracies are falling prey to illiberalism and populist dissension while a rising China, assisted by a pugnacious Russia, seeks to challenge the West’s authority and republican approaches to both domestic and international governance. U.S. President Joe Biden is committed to refurbishing American democracy, restoring U.S. leadership in the world, and taming a pandemic that has had devastating human and economic consequences. But Biden’s victory was a close call; on neither side of the Atlantic will angry populism or illiberal temptations readily abate.

And then there is Jacob Rothschild:
[rt.com] – Rothschild worried about new world economic order
“In 9/11 and in the 2008 financial crisis, the powers of the world worked together with a common approach. Co-operation today is proving much more difficult. This puts at risk the post-war economic and security order,” Rothschild warned in his investment trust’s half-year results commentary. In economics, the post-war order is usually refers to a monetary management system which led to a rise of the US dollar as a dominant currency.
Well, mr Rothschildt, we understand your concerns, as the post-WW2 economic and security is most of all your order. Europeans however, who were at the receiving end of that order, are far less concerned about the immanent demise of empire:
