“If we look beyond the short-term hardship, there are many reasons to believe that America will remain ascendant well into the middle decades of this century. And one important reason is people. From 2000 to 2050, the U.S. will add another 100 million to its population, putting the country on a growth track far faster than most other major nations in the world. And with that growth will come a host of relative economic and social benefits. Within the next four decades, most of the developed countries in both Europe and East Asia [including China] will become veritable old-age homes. The U.S. will maintain a youthful, dynamic demographic [and is] diverging from its prime competitors.”
