The US has been involved in many global or regional events, especially ideological conflicts and military confrontations. What would Americans stand to lose if the US is no longer leading the world in those events, but continued to maintain a free and open country similar to the past Western empires that had stood the test of time and stand to enjoy flourish and peace with less military strength?

The bottom line is: Can the US retreat from the world stage by reducing its involvement in ideological conflicts and regional military confrontations not directly affecting them (unless invited by the UN for peacekeeping), thus acting more like the UK, Germany, or Australia? In that case, what would the typical American stand to lose?

I can think of a few immediate impacts on the US and its citizens, whether positive or negative:

  • Reduced military forces and professionals.
  • Reduced demand for military weapons and equipment.
  • Increased labor supply, and higher unemployment.
  • Dollar devaluation.
  • Smaller government with a smaller budget, maybe a smaller deficit too.

Hope somebody can share insights on the impacts - short-term and long-term.

Are there studies, analyses, or researches by the school of advocates, and writings by the think-tanks?
