Mr. Wattenberg explained why his book, The First Universal Nation: Leading Indicators and Ideas About the Surge of America in the 1990s, concludes that America will remain a vital nation into the 21st century. America’s success will, in large part, be due to the broad spectrum of ethnic groups which contribute to the dynamism of the culture. He elaborates on other indicators such as health, politics, immigration, and housing. His topics all draw on statistical evidence for guidance. The book is also a memoir of his career, which included working as a speech writer for President Johnson. He is currently a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research. close
