A new report by the National Intelligence Council states that the United States will lose its superpower status by 2030.
Instead, the report says, power will shift to “networks and coalitions in a multipolar world.”
The council, which wrote Global Trends 2030, was established in 1979. It supports the U.S. director of National Intelligence and is the intelligence community’s center for long-term strategic analysis.
The council’s intelligence officers are drawn from government, academia and the private sector.
