The article discusses whether the U.S. could still lead the world despite its own economic problem. It states that the events in the first week of August 2011 reflected the errors with the priorities of the nation's politicians, including the debt-ceiling crisis and the low rating of Standard & Poor's 500 Index (S&P). A cabinet member of British Prime Minister David Cameron comments that U.S. President Barack Obama seems passive at a moment when a leader is needed by the world.
