Check out what others are saying about The Next Hundred Million:

“Kotkin (The City) offers a well-researched—and very sunny—forecast for the American economy, arguing that despite its daunting current difficulties the U.S. economy ‘will emerge by midcentury as the most affluent, culturally rich, and successful nation in history.’…His confidence is well-supported and a reassuring balm amid the political and economic turmoil of the moment.”—Publishers Weekly

“With his usual insightful and contrarian style, Joel Kotkin paints a surprisingly optimistic portrait of America's future in The Next Hundred Million. Placing his faith in the American people and their families and communities, Kotkin once again demonstrates his preeminent skills in describing where our country is really headed. If pundits and policy-makers were to heed the advice offered in this compelling book, our country’s future would be even brighter for America's youngest generations.”—Morley Winograd, co-author of Millennial Makeover: My Space, You Tube and the Future of American Politics

“A fascinating glimpse into a crystal ball, rich in implications that are alternately disturbing and exhilarating —Kirkus Reviews

“Joel Kotkin, born in an America of 200 million people and writing in a nation of 300 million, gives us a tantalizing picture of what the United States will be like when it has 400 million, at the midpoint of this new century. Kotkin has a gift for spotting trends in columns of statistics and a keen eye for the revealing details of everyday life. The Next Hundred Million is an indispensable guidebook to America's future.”
—Michael Barone, co-author of The Almanac of American Politics

“America in 2050 will resemble neither the conservative dream of homogenous small town life nor the liberal preference for order and security. Joel Kotkin’s fascinating new book explains why.”—Alan Wolfe, author of The Future of Liberalism
