Review: The Next Hundred Million: America in 2050

Spring 2010, Vol. 35, No. 1

Abstract: In this thoughtful and thorough review of author Joel Kotkin’s book, reviewer David Lynn, CRE, finds it “…highly informative and readable at the same time, which I expect is atypical for a book on demographics.” An analysis in detail of how an additional 100 million people will affect the U.S. social and urban landscape by 2050, this book takes a look at population forecasting, relocation, cultural diversity and changes to the American family by the year 2050.
