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