As one millennium gave way to another, few in the West worried about the West’s future. A decade later and most writers – and the majority of policy- makers – were now taking it as read that the West’s best days were behind it. How and why had this shift taken place?  Was indeed such a shift occurring? And what role did the same western economists who failed to predict the 2008 crisis play  in shaping this new consensus about the balance of power in the 21st century?
