In this intriguing study of demographic trends in the United States, Paul Taylor – a former journalist and former head of the Pew Research Center – outlines the rapid shifts convulsing American society. He cites various polling and research sources and closely reads media coverage and scholarly analysis. White Americans, Taylor writes, will soon lose their population majority, while liberal millennials will inherit an enormous numerical advantage in electoral politics – and so far, millennials have not aged into conservative positions. To his credit – and in evidence of his comprehensive research – Taylor acknowledges that predicting the behavior of US voters is no simple task. This holds especially true for voters born after 1980. But he argues that given millions of millennials and the growing racial diversity of the US, demographics tend to favor future Democrats. Taylor relies on crisp prose and engaging anecdotes to paint a picture of a US society that is changing, with astonishing rapidity. getAbstract recommends his enlightening, hard-nosed overview to managers, investors, policy makers, NGOs, professors and students seeking a fresh analysis of an important topic – the future of the United States.

In this book, you will learn

  • How US demographics are changing,
  • What these changes may mean for business and politics,
  • How baby boomers differ from millennials and
  • Why longer life spans concern Americans saving for retirement.
