Abstract:

"Many Americans regard the massive influx of immigrants over the past thirty years with great anxiety, fearing new burdens and unwanted changes to the nation's ethnic, social, and economic identity. Virtually unnoticed in the contentious national debate over immigration is the even more significant demographic change about to occur as the first wave of the baby boom generation retires, slowly draining the workforce and straining the federal budget to the breaking point. In this book, Immigrants and Boomers, demographer Dowell Myers proposes a new way of thinking about these issues and argues that each of these two powerful demographic shifts may hold the keys to resolving the problems presented by the other."--Jacket.
