Will the US top the 400 million population mark or no?

Do you think the US population will reach this milestone? Why or why not?

Barring a plague, major population reducing war or a drastic and long term decline of the western economic model I don't see how we cant?

We grow by about 2-3 million people a year, we are already closing in on 325 million.

We will hit 400 million in about 30-40 years, almost certainly.

Yes, the question is will we hit 1 billion some day.

International migration is huge and is required to keep the current economic system of consumption afloat. This could all change if we figure out how to maintain our lifestyle and entitlements with a stagnant system, but that has yet to be seen in a fiat currency system.

I would say so..At the time of your Civil war, your population was just under Canada's current population of 35 million (31 million).So, from 1860(ish) to now your population increased ten fold. to add an extra 20-25% isn't out of reach..Even within the next 50 years.I know that birth rates aren't the same and there could be a lot of unforeseen variables hindering that curve, but it's definitely doable.

interesting to note, that Canada's population went from around 3.0 million to 35 million from 1860, or ten fold as well, but unless climate refugees become a real thing, I can't get my head around our population hitting your current population in 170 years. Another ten fold increase is a long shot.
