The Next America


There's a huge demographic shift happening in America, as thousands of Baby Boomers retire every day and as the tech-savvy, well-educated and under-employed Millennials come of age. The Baby Boomers will need Social Security and health care, and that costs money - and that risks bankrupting the younger generation. Paul Taylor from the Pew Research Center has studied this shift and what it may mean for Boomers, Millenials and the future of America and has laid out his findings in a new book, The Next America.
