Economics due to all the ridiculous turmoil, perhaps only just, if that? Politically however, no i don't think it is even close. The most important region in the world is still currently and politically found in North America led by the US. Trailed by Europe with the three dominant continental powers being France, Germany and the UK. Eurasia with Russia and East Asia with China.
