*large numbers of immigrants who want to come here.
They want to go ANYWHERE--but the US is their *first* choice.
*higher birth rates
Birth rates have dropped off in the US *except* for new immigrants.
*extensive natural resources yet to be developed (if we choose to do so)
Depends on the "natural resource". Lots of talk--but when it comes time to actually *spend* money, the companies are NOT doing it unless they have an established market (China, etc). The "easy to get" stuff is long gone, so getting the rest will require significant time and expense to obtain--and may need a new technology to make it affordable (or even possible).
