Examining the Case for One Billion Americans

with Matthew Yglesias

Moderated by Charles Duhigg

Is immigration key to bolstering the American economy? Could having one billion Americans secure the US’s position as the global superpower? What if massive population growth could nourish rural economies and strengthen our country from the inside out? Perhaps these questions are provocative fodder for more debate and contention but, for Matthew Yglesias, asking them and arguing about them is part of the American way. Join him in a conversation moderated by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Charles Duhigg as they explore the case for one billion Americans.
