From family dynamics to the global economy, the graying of the boomer generation will impact every aspect of society. What is next for boomers and the generations that follow in their wake?
As the planet’s population surges towards 9 billion in 2050, our sheer numbers will exert tremendous pressure on resources, infrastructures and the ability of leaders to address the issues of the massive shift in demographics.
Living longer and better may be the biggest challenge any individual boomer faces, but the global implications of an aging world population are equally daunting. Few issues are as universal and compelling in the world and in one’s own life.
