Ultimately, as Otto von Bismarck once implied, the biggest political changes are brought about by demographic changes, over which there is little control. Here is a look at four demographic trends that will dictate politics for the next 50 years:

  1. Increasingly young population in the Middle East / Arab world that are modern yet conservative.
  2. Increasingly wide gap between Israeli Jewish youth and non-Israeli Jewish youth.
  3. Increasing Hispanic population of the Southern United States
  4. High birth rates among immigrant populations in Europe.
