The American Model, Comments on "Why the American Century?"
Henri Mendras gives here a brief analysis of the last book by Olivier Kunz: Why the American Century? which, he thinks, explains remarkably well why the United States is such a power.
He applies himself to define the specifics of the American model: the rise of the middle class, the priority given to collective action, the "social evangelism", and eventually, the creation of a happy synergy between research, industry and concern for the common good which, for example, pushes industry barons to become mecenes and philanthropists.
