In Decline on Many Fronts

Today, we’re looking at Parker, Morin & Menasce Horowitz study for the non-partisan, Pew Research Center. Their study, “Looking to the Future, Public Sees an America in Decline on Many Fronts,” suggests that “majorities of Americans foresee a country with a burgeoning national debt, a wider gap between the rich and the poor and a workforce threatened by automation.” 

For this reading response, look through their essay and select a statistic or a a couple related statistic.  Write 200 words on why you think this statistic may be true or false. Or, explain what current events you see today that support this statistic. 

Again, remember, this is an informal writing response. You can use personal pronouns (I, me, we us).  Feel free to relate your response to your personal experience.  Your response will not be evaluated for its grammar or spelling, but do your best.  Practicing writing is the best way to get better at it!
