America's Demographic Destiny: 550 Million People by 2050?

If "demography is destiny" then the United States in the 21st Century will become larger, richer and more powerful than ever.

While fertility rates are dropping in other developed countries, and even China is facing the prospect of a huge and rapidly aging population, some demographers believe that the U.S. is in the "midst of an expansion that might rival its post-World War II baby boom... resulting in a population of 550 million by 2050."
