On The Road Towards Ethnic Plurality

Ethnic plurality has been an accepted fact in many of the most populous states in the US for some time.  Overall the pace towards ethnic plurality is accelerating as racial and ethnic minority births now start to outpace white births (see chart nearby).

These dynamic demographic changes are driven by the US Hispanic population and will benefit  the US economy substantially. 

As Fareed Zakaria noted recently on US politics and the economy:
"Its (US) demographics are strikingly healthy: It will be the only rich country in the world to actually increase its population over the next 30 years - which means more young workers, producers, entrepreneurs and taxpayers."
