Can you read my answer the the question and give me a marks on what I did. Thanks Explain how recent economic changes have undermined the power and influence of the 20th century superpowers (9). Recent Economic changes like the global recession in 2008 have shown a decrease in power from current super powers like the US and UK. One Economic problem is the amount of debt the country is in. The global recession in 2008 has created higher public debt in rich countries like the UK. This means that citizens of the UK are more likely to have an increase in taxes and a decrease of wages so the government is able to subsidise fundamental public sector services like the BUS and Emergency services. Unemployment has led to a decrease of power. This spark is because of TNCs relocating the secondary industries like factories and industrial to countries where costs like labour are cheaper. This means that jobs in the existing superpower will be lost leading to unemployment. An example is Jaguar land rover who moved all their industry from the UK to places like Shanghai so they can save money and decrease costs. These changes gave undermined the power of 20th century countries because previously, it was about being a hard power and having military and economic dominance but now countries have become neocolonial so it is more about businesses in their countries.
