Imagining 2024: How Americans See the Next Years

America has changed dramatically since the first Aspen Ideas Festival ten years ago. The Aspen Ideas Festival/Atlantic “Imagining 2024 Survey,” in partnership with Burson-Marsteller, examines where Americans think our country and our lives are heading in the next ten years. The Survey, conducted by Penn, Schoen, Berland, paints a vivid picture of the type of country Americans expect to live in a decade from now, exploring expectations for America’s place in the world, its politics and economy, issues like education and healthcare, forces like climate change and technology, and changes in society and our personal lives.
