RE: The U.S. in 2050: Bigger, younger, less white, less urban
As a 55 year old I think the biggest problem we face in the near future is that us baby boomers are going to retire. For most all of us this will mean that will become government benefit collectors at the same time that we cease being tax payers. Leaving obvious question , who will pay the taxes. This is why an increase of one or two hundred million immigrants is welcome in my view. The drawback I fear is that we can almost depend on government to screw it up. I predict that for the usual political reasons they will do things like pit us against each other racially the way they have been for decades (neither major party being exempt form that one). Another one we can depend on is that they will get the new people dependant on government handouts ,the result being that will end up collecting more than they pay in . And the list goes on and on . Yes this will be another great idea destroyed by government.
