Description

America has potentially destabilizing challenges. The future of the country will be determined in large part by how we face these issues on the policy level. Keeping in mind the challenges of sweeping demographic change through processes of immigration and aging, of the role of big data and privacy, and of the all-consuming stress of debt, how can we find solutions that will reinforce an innovative and inspiring America? We discuss solutions though health care, education, and security reforms; we include a discussion of political limitations as well.
