Description

The Next America: Demographic Change and Political Polarization

The America of the near future will look nothing like the America of the recent past. Two profound demographic transformations are occurring: our population is becoming majority non-white at the same time that a record share is going gray. These changes have created huge generation gaps. Young and old do not look alike, think alike, vote alike, or use technology alike. Taylor will discuss what this means for our families, politics, economy, and sense of social cohesion.

Paul Taylor is the author of The Next America: Boomers, Millennials and the Looming Generational Showdown and serves as senior fellow at Encore.org, a nonprofit that mobilizes older adults to help children and youth thrive. He is a former executive vice president of The Pew Research Center and a former reporter at The Washington Post, where he covered US presidential campaigns and was South Africa bureau chief during the transition from apartheid to democracy.
