Much has been written about corporate life cycles and survival of the mature corporation. In my view, a country goes through the various life cycle stages much like a corporation does, from start-up to maturity and decline. My contention is that America is in its late stages of decline.
An article in Harvard Business Review suggests that there are four stages in corporate development:
Stage 1: Youth and Enthusiasm
Stage 2: Adolescence and Ambition
Stage 3: Maturity and Best Practice
Stage 4: Change and Struggle for Survival
