Power and Influence in a Globalized World

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Mar 13, 2018 | Atlantic Council, Jonathan Moyer et al

Material capabilities - such as gross domestic product (GDP) or defense expenditures - do not define a country’s power. In this article by the Atlantic Council, Jonathan Moyer et al measure the influence of states from 1963 to the present. Their key findings include:  Global influence is concentrated in the hands of the few, with only ten countries possessing about half of the world’s influence. A growing number of states wield greater amounts of influence over larger geographical distances. US’ global influence is declining and is considerably smaller than its share of the world’s coercive capabilities, while China’s globalization is changing the meaning of power.
