Red, blue, purple

A joint Brookings-American Enterprise Institute project, The Future of Red, Blue and Purple America sets forth 7 trends that "seem likely to be particularly important to decoding our political future." A paper on each trend will be presented at a conference on Feb. 28, 2008. The papers will be published online and a book will be published in fall 2008. The Brookings Governance Studies Program has published an executive summary of the project.

The seven trends:
  • The rise of exurbia and the changing face of the suburbs
  • Do birds of a feather flock together?
  • Race, immigration and the next American people
  • The decline of the white working class and other shifts in the American class structure
  • The changing American family
  • More secular, more evangelical...or both?
  • The aging of the boomers and the rise of the millennials
