The Next America: Opportunity for All

June 25, 2015
Washington, D.C.

The United States will not have a clear ra­cial or eth­nic ma­jor­ity by 2043. The coun­try’s shift­ing demo­graph­ics and the emer­gence of a large, di­verse con­sumer base have huge im­plic­a­tions for the U.S. eco­nomy and the coun­try as a whole. The na­tion has seen an ex­plo­sion of think­ing from pub­lic, private and non-profit lead­ers on how to best em­power this grow­ing demo­graph­ic, and ex­perts say that the pref­er­ences of this group will be­come even more sig­ni­fic­ant as the 2016 elec­tion cycle draws near.

Na­tion­al Journ­al con­vened key ex­perts and the best and bright­est think­ing around an in­creas­ingly im­port­ant ques­tion:what will it take to lift more of the emer­ging “Next Amer­ica” in­to the middle class?
