Usually a powerful empire can last for 200 years, but can US last for 100 years as the super power (1945-2045)?

Im not convinced the 200 year concept is applicable to modern world dynamics so I dont think this is a viable question.

The US has been an economic superpower since about 1870. We probably have enough economic power to last another 50 years, even if the economy gets really slow. And perhaps we'll be like the Byzantine Empire which effectively had money to pay off the "barbarians" and keep them at bay for hundreds of years past it's effective end.

I'm not sure what could end us. My personal guess is lack of innovation and reluctance to invest in infastructure will drag of down and cut our future. Political unrest is as bad as it's been for the past 50 years. If we'd believe our own Pentagon, they'd constantly IDed climate change as security threat number 1.
