America is in decline, and the rise of the East suggests a bleak future for the worlds only superpower-so goes the conventional wisdom. But what if the traditional measures of national status are no longer as important as they once were? What if Americas well-being was assessed according to entirely different factors?
In The Upside of Down, Charles Kenny argues that Americas so-called decline is only relative to the newfound success of other countries. And there is tremendous upside to life in a wealthier world: Americans can benefit from better choices and cheaper prices offered by schools and hospitals in rising countries, and, without leaving home, avail themselves of the new inventions and products those countries will produce. The key to thriving in this world is to move past the jeremiads about Americas deteriorating status and figure out how best to take advantage of its new role in a multipolar world. A refreshing antidote to prophecies of American decline, The Upside of Down offers a fresh and highly optimistic look at Americas future in a wealthier world.
Upbeat without being Panglossian, Kennys starting point is that the relative decline is inevitable. The rise of the rest is not only well under way. It is also desirable.... Kennys account of US misdirectedness is salient. Yet he never strays too far from his chief argument-the west has all the resources it needs to make life better for all of its people. That, after all, is what the game should be about.

Charles Kenny is the real deal: an optimist with an economists data to back him up. So when he looks at the glass and sees its half full-you can rest assured its not because he needs new contacts. In The Upside of Down, he carefully dismantles our preconceived notions about American decline and the rise of the rest-and makes a convincing case by the end for why we shouldnt be too worried about either.
-Susan Glasser, editor, POLITICO Magazine
Americas declining influence in the world has been the subject of many books, articles and spirited debates. Charles Kenny explains why the declinists are wrong and surprises us with insights that are as original as they are persuasive. Read this book if you want to be reassured about Americas future.

Only Charles Kenny could write a cheerful book about decline. But by showing that relative decline actually means absolute gain when measuring the progress of the United States against rising powers such as Brazil, India, China, and parts of Africa, Kenny opens the door to a far more positive vision of the future, one that is backed by data rather than dreams and that inspires both hope and energy. The Upside of Down turned my world right side up!
-Anne-Marie Slaughter, President and CEO of the New America Foundation and Bert G. Kerstetter 66 University Professor Emerita of Politics and International Affairs, Princeton University
This book is the essential guide to understanding, and being rationally optimistic about, the weakening West, rising Rest, globalizing all story that is now playing out. Charles Kenny, admirably conversant with the facts and research, lays this story out with clarity, lightness, and insight.
-Arvind Subramanian, Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics and author of Eclipse: Living in the Shadow of Chinas Economic Dominance
