I think you're misinterpreting the report. It's not meant as proof of where the USA will stand 20 or more years from now. All it provides is some clue (among other clues) as to what the trend may be in the decades going ahead.

I don't think any country will dominate 20 years from now. Even now I don't think any country dominates in technology. The US has great research institutions, and as far as military and space technology goes we are the leader. But I don't think we "dominate". Japan and S Korea are doing amazing things in robotics and while I don't think they dominate in that technology sector, I do believe they are the world leaders in robotics. China is still behind in most technology sectors, but they are catching quickly. They have an advantage of having lots of cheap intelligent labor. Europe has some great research institutions and leading manufacturers, but I doubt there are many who would say they are leaders. Russia has really fallen behind in recent years. They do a great job for how much money they spend, but their space technology is getting quite old and they don't have much on the horizon for any technology sectors.

I think no country will dominate the technology. And this is good.

For general purpose, USA will remain the largest power, followed by South Korea and Japan.
But many other countries are important technological producers and, I think, they will increase their importance for technology in the world. Some of these are India, China, Israel, Germany, France, Finland, Singapore and Canada.

The only country which was an important player of the past, but not in present, is Russia. They were pioneers in the spacecraft and military, but for now and in the next years, I hardly can imagine Russia as a serious competitor, they are very dependent on commodities.

Never underestimate Russia.

According to Hightowers link we are much better than the US.
We can advance in technology even with social problems.
What does the rest of western Europe have to do with it?
Was it something else you wanted to say?
