University Lecture Series: Latinization of America

“Latinization of America”
Presented by: Jacqueline Angel, Ph.D. • Professor, Lyndon B Johnson School of Public Affairs

A striking reality of U.S. society has always been a high degree of multiculturalism. Because of high fertility and immigration, today Hispanics represent a growing proportion of the nation’s labor force. In states like California and Texas Latinos will soon make up half or more of all workers. They will be called upon to support tomorrow’s retirees, pay for defense, the education of future generations, infrastructure improvements, health care, and all the rest of the country’s needs. My presentation will summarize a tradition of research on sources of vulnerability of this population and discuss the consequences of these vulnerabilities for the nation’s economic prosperity.

Watch the lecture.
