Really nothing or very little. The US and USSR struggled themselves to exhaustion during the long 40 year 'Cold War'. The USSR dropped and collapsed 1st, so the US 'won', but the US had suffered too and was a shadow of it's former self. The 'dot com boom' of the 1990's kept the US healthy for awhile but....the huge cost of the 10 year long big 'Vietnam War' (1965-1975), the 'arms race', the huge US military buildup of the 1980's, the Iran Contra Scandal, the 1st Afghan War (1979-1985).... all part of the 'Cold War' took it's toll on the US. By the time the USSR fell (1991) the US had financed and run up huge Cold War debts, it had no plans to 'benefit' as it never had wanted to expand territorially. The US enemy was gone so the US had a 'free hand' in the world as only top world power 1992-2002 but no idea what to do with the opportunity. When it finally tried a move....taking Iraq in a even more costly war (2003-2012) it backfired and the US has been in recession/ near recession the entire time (2007-2014) without benefit from it's victory in the Cold War.
