Pollster John Zogby on Societal and Generational Change

In his latest book, The Way We'll Be, pollster John Zogby says today's young Americans are the products of globalization. They're citizens of planet earth, not just the United States.According to Zogby, the American dream is in transition; it is rapidly being redefined by four movements: living with limits as consumers and citizens; embracing diversity of views and ways of life; looking inward to find spiritual comfort; and demanding authenticity from the media, our leaders, and leading institutions.Spearheaded by today’s eighteen-to-twenty-nine-year-olds–the “First Global” generation–Americans are becoming more internationalist, consensus-oriented, and environmentally conscious and less willing to identify themselves by the things they do to earn or spend their money.Zogby will speak at the World Affairs Council in Louisville tonight, but he sat down with WFPL's Gabe Bullard, who we believe is a young person, to discuss these trends.The full interview is here:
