In stark distinction to the remainder of the world's complex international locations, the USA is growing to be at a checklist cost and, based on census projections, could be domestic to 400 million americans via 2050.

Drawing on prodigious learn, firsthand reportage, and ancient research, the subsequent Hundred Million finds how this remarkable development will take actual form and alter the face of the US. the vast majority of the extra hundred million american citizens will locate their houses in suburbia, although the suburbs of the following day won't resemble the Levittowns of the Fifties or the sprawling exurbs of the overdue 20th century. The suburbs of the twenty-first century could be much less reliant on significant towns for jobs and different facilities and, for that reason, extra power effective. Suburbs may also be the melting pots of the longer term as progressively more immigrants decide on dispersed residing over crowded internal towns and the bulk within the usa turns into nonwhite by way of 2050.

In coming a long time, urbanites will flock in some distance better numbers to cheap, mammoth, and autoreliant metropolitan areas-such as Houston, Phoenix, and Las Vegas-than to glamorous yet dear business towns, equivalent to ny and Chicago. Kotkin additionally foresees that the twenty-first century should be marked by means of a resurgence of the yank heartland, a ways much less remoted within the electronic period and an important resource of renewable fuels and genuine property for a starting to be inhabitants. yet in either immense towns and small cities around the nation, we are going to see what Kotkin calls "the new localism"-a higher emphasis on relations ties and native group, enabled through on-line networks and the expanding numbers of american citizens operating from home.

The subsequent Hundred Million presents a vibrant image of the United States in 2050 by way of focusing no longer on strength agents, coverage disputes, or summary developments, yet fairly at the evolution of the extra intimate devices of yankee society-families, cities, neighborhoods, industries. it's upon the good fortune or failure of those groups, Kotkin argues, that the yank destiny rests.
