Présentation de l'éditeur

The America of the near future will look nothing like the America of the recent past.

America is in the throes of a demographic overhaul. Huge generation gaps have opened up in our political and social values, our economic well-being, our family structure, our racial and ethnic identity, our gender norms, our religious affiliation, and our technology use.

Today’s Millennials—well-educated, tech savvy, underemployed twenty-somethings—are at risk of becoming the first generation in American history to have a lower standard of living than their parents. Meantime, more than 10,000 Baby Boomers are retiring every single day, most of them not as well prepared financially as they’d hoped. This graying of our population has helped polarize our politics, put stresses on our social safety net, and presented our elected leaders with a daunting challenge: How to keep faith with the old without bankrupting the young and starving the future.

Every aspect of our demography is being fundamentally transformed. By mid-century, the population of the United States will be majority non-white and our median age will edge above 40—both unprecedented milestones. But other rapidly-aging economic powers like China, Germany, and Japan will have populations that are much older. With our heavy immigration flows, the US is poised to remain relatively young. If we can get our spending priorities and generational equities in order, we can keep our economy second to none. But doing so means we have to rebalance the social compact that binds young and old. In tomorrow’s world, yesterday’s math will not add up.

Drawing on Pew Research Center’s extensive archive of public opinion surveys and demographic data, The Next America is a rich portrait of where we are as a nation and where we’re headed—toward a future marked by the most striking social, racial, and economic shifts the country has seen in a century.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 MAJOR CHANGES ARE BLOWIN' IN THE WIND 4 mars 2014
Par Robert Steven Thomas - Publié sur
This is one of the most concise, well-written accounts of the growing divide among Americans that I have ever encountered. It is brave, honest, direct, unbiased and drives straight at the heart of our current political & societal disconnect. While it does not offer very many workable answers (they are all so varied and complex it demands greater participation to resolve) it does get a number of the most important problems out on the table so that a wider group of concerned individuals can begin to grapple with the solutions. As the chasm continues to expand over the next couple of decades, this dilemma will necessarily attract more and more individual participation. I f you want to get a head start on the coming debate read this compelling book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Dive into the sea of statistical data book offers, it will certainly keep you interested 14 mars 2014
Par Denis Vukosav - Publié sur
‘The Next America’ written by Paul Taylor with a help from Pew Research Center research is an interesting book that through a variety of statistical data gives an accurate picture of what is America today and to what extent such picture is different from what it used to be in the past, or what some would like to think it is.

The book is presented in a manner known to those who follow the activities of the Pew Research Center, providing many statistical figures, charts and reports combined with the author's interpreting - therefore, except for the reading it could be an ideal source of useful data for further use, as a reference for other works.

‘The Next America’ is divided into 12 chapters that provide statistical information grouped by specific categories, named in the funny way which will immediately associate the reader what particular chapter is about such as Whither Marriage?, Nones on the Rise or Empty Cradle, Gray World.

Paul Taylor’s book is not too long, and on its 200 pages of text offers a fairly accurate picture in which direction America is heading that might not appeal to some, especially on the subject of exceptional growing divide between US residents. The author is not afraid to get on tricky issues like religion, sex or drugs while maintaining objectivity and a neutral attitude, trying to present data without politicization.

I personally was very interested to see trends that coincide very closely with my personal assumptions in which direction the future of America is going, so I believe you as well will find some answers in this book, or you may be intrigued to ask some new questions. In any case, I suggest you to dive into the sea of data book offers; ‘The Next America’ will certainly keep you interested for some time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book is a page turner. 29 mars 2014

I love the way the stats are disaggregated and made understandable for the lay person. There are even bits of humor here and there, if you can believe that. I read this on my kindle which does not do justice to the charts but I purchased a hard copy for my daughter who is very interested in social research so that she can have a "hard copy" on which to make notes. Being in the Silent Generation myself, I found that the solutions/observations about the younger and older generations being more alike than oppositional were encouraging.

Excellent translation of data to useful information. The book should serve as a ready handbook and reference for anyone interested and involved (that should be all of us) in the changing nature of today's society. Without a ready understanding of our demographics, its impossible to grasp the import of the issues ranging from early childhood education to support services for older adults.
