Disruptive Demographics

"Dr. James H. Johnson provided attendees with an interesting look into the demographic makeup of the U.S.. The U.S. population changed dramatically - in size, composition, and distribution, during the first decade of the new millennium. These shifts have drastically altered the social, economic, and political fabric of our nation. This session outlined six of the most disruptive demographic trends today and the challenges and opportunities they pose for the American economy."

Seth Dixon's insight:

I was glad to have someone show me where to find the video of an earlier version of talk given at the APHG reading. His talk, entitled “Disruptive Demographics: Implications for Global Competitiveness” (a video of a prior version of this talk is available here and the PDF file available here) follows in a tradition of superb presentation at the reading; in 2012, Roger Downs gave a great professional development presentation on geographic expertise.
