During the “Baby Boomer” era, following WWII, America underwent one of the largest demographic shifts and population growths in history. Huge amounts of home construction on the outskirts of America’s largest cities, known as “levittowns” became the new staple of the American dream, with the houses sporting two car garages, and white picket fences. These low density, predominantly middle class residential districts, were America’s first true suburbs. These suburbs were constructed mainly in response to the new postwar consumerism that enveloped the parents of the baby boomers. With the new economy, affordable housing, and most families becoming single income dependent, families grew bigger and bigger. The 1947 passing of the bill that lead to the interstate highway system, only added fuel to the fire of suburbanization. With the new interstate highway system, more affordable and fuel efficient automobiles, and the government aiding in the financing of new suburban homes, the choice seemed elementary. All of these factors pushing to the suburban movement, only spurred the baby boomers on, and between 1940-50, there was an 835% percent increase in living births with nearly 4 million children being born every year. In 1940, 19.5% of the United States population lived in what would be considered to be suburban areas outside of large metropolitan areas, however, by 1960; the number was pushing nearly 40%. The postwar suburbanization of America during the baby boomer
1.) What difficulties—from retiring baby boomers in the United States to a graying China, to the massive overhang of Europe’s elderly—can private corporations, governments, and other sectors expect as the aging revolution unfolds across the globe? How will changing demographics affect workforce composition? Retirement age? Pension outlays? Taxation? Immigration? Economic growth? How can governments, corporations, and nongovernmental organizations work together to address these issues?
Shopping: Shopping for the Baby Boomers would have been somewhat limited. The traditional Macy's experience would be about as dynamic as a Baby Boomer could get in terms of choices. If the local Sears didn't have what they needed, they'd have to go to a specialty store and take the number from the catalog, and if they were lucky, get the correct item ordered in about 4 - 6 weeks!
Before we can get into the juicy information pertaining to the fascinating period of Baby Boomers, we must first take a quick glance at what was happening before this occurred.The main event that came to a conclusion that had a significance to the world and is a recent and relevant topic to the Baby Boomer period was the end of World War II.World War II had been going on since 1939 when the Nazi army and the Soviet Union united invaded Poland, resulting in the British and French declaring war on Germany.The allies allow Hitler to commit illegal actions without deciding to go after him(they just sat and watch him invade and grow as the years went by).It seems over for the Allies until the Japanese decided to obliterate Pearl Harbor December
Baby boomers grew up in a generation that had high hopes for the future of their country. More people mean’t more education, higher levels of income and thus more buying and spending than any previous generations in history. It was in itself, a generational movement of people who believed they were
Baby Boomers constructed America in the 1960s, and soon the Millennials will get their chance. Baby boomers are currently the largest generation of active workers. Research has shown that boomers identify their strengths as organizational memory, optimism, and their willingness to work long hours. Many earned, many still earn high incomes. The millennial generation, born between 1980 and 2000, are starting to enter businesses in large numbers. However, they do not have the same views and values when working compared to the Boomers. This Boomers grew up in organizations with large corporate hierarchies, and Millennials grew up with management structures and teamwork based job roles. By 2025, millennials will make up the 75% of the workforce replacing the Boomer generation. But, are they ready for the workforce and is the workforce ready for them? I think they would be ready if businesses are able to change and adapt towards them.
Financial elder abuse is a prominent issue in the world, and will continue to increase due to financial burdens the Millennials will face in their upcoming years. The fear of Social Security benefit reductions as well as the increase of college tuition prices, will add to future financial elder abuse incidents.
Following World War II, there was a major cultural shift throughout all of America, as society adjusted from living through the Depression and the War to newfound prosperity and opportunities. The country was thriving with new medical breakthroughs and technologies, as well as new forms of media spreading different ideas throughout the country like never before. This generation, created by the Baby Boom, had the freedom to do things their parents did not, and spend their free time on activities they wanted to. Without having to worry about working to help keep their family afloat or go to war, they were able to concentrate on art, music, sports and other materialistic aspects which has been the outline for our culture since that time. This transition caused the youth to create their own organizations and essentially their own society which looked completely different from anything America had seen in the past, this also created a lot of tension between the youth and their elders.
The aging of the baby boomers is not just a demographic issue. It has important economic implications. Owen and Griffiths (2010) argue that the baby boomers can best be seen as a generational bulge that occurred between 1946 and 1964. This generational bulge is so large that it drives the economy during each state of the baby boomers lives (p. 76). This suggests that the aging of the baby boomers is a demographic issue with important economic implications.
Baby boomers are people born between 1946 and 1964. The baby boomer generation will turn 65 by the year 2030. One-fourth of the entire population, will be seniors. With so many medical advances, many Americans are living longer, 5.8 million of seniors are expected to be older than 85. With so many baby boomers living longer, and the United States facing a growing rate of chronic diseases, we could be facing a health care crisis.
There are ways that baby boomers are a great asset to the health world. In the health care industry, the average 70-year-old takes about three times more medication than the typical 40-year-old. By the time they are done, 78 million baby boomers will have outlived millions of hip replacements and heart transplants, swallowed tons of Advil and Viagra, and consumed billions of boxes of brand. Which cause for a whole lot of health care spending. Baby boomers are also great when it comes to the traveling industry. In their younger days, boomers were extremely adventurous. Thanks to the baby boomers who in the 1960s and '70s made random student trips to Europe and also to single resort scene to the apotheosis in the 1970s. Especially the posh room
During the Great Depression and World War II many Americans delayed marrying and having children because of the poor economy. The number of marriages and births soared after the war. Many older couples who had delayed having children began having them when the war ended. This increase in births among both younger and older American couples created the Baby Boom Generation. This large group of people born in the U.S. from 1946 to 1964 amounted to 76 million children. Those born during this time make up approximately 36% of today’s population (Deutsch). What impact has this had on the economy? Read on to see how the baby boom generation has affected the economy and what will happen as they retire.
Baby Boomers have been one of the most powerful forces in shaping the economic environment and are the wealthiest generation in the United States (Kotler and Armstrong, 2015). “In their early years, “Leading Edge” Boomers enjoyed economic prosperity, and their resulting financial power in their prime years drove rising trends in everything. However, the recessionary years of the early 1970’s also added cautionary realities to their youthful consumption and employment dreams” (“America’s Oldest Boomers”, n.d.). Baby boomers control approximately 70% of the disposable income in the United States, therefore, they are known as being one of the most influential financial forces in the marketplace (“Baby Boomers Report”, 2015). As they reach their
I will probably upset ninety percent of the population over the age of thirty with my next statement, so with that said, I over my life time have come to believe there are many lessons older generations can learn from mine; also referred to as the millennials. My generation consists of anyone born from 1995-2005, and there is no shortage of criticism from the older population on our faults and life choices. Every move forward my generation seems to make is met with a huge wave of resistance coming from the rest of the citizens in America. This is where if the older generations were willing to give our unconventional ways just a second of attention they may be surprised and learn a thing or two from us growing up in this era. Some of the main things I believe they could benefit from learning from us is the fact that technology is not going anywhere and they should learn to love it as it continues to advance. They should not measure their life success based on money but instead of happiness and how complete they feel within themselves. No one should get too busy with work or stressed over living that they forget it is fine to relax and have fun every now and then. Another big lesson is they could learn to be more open minded and accepting of everyone around them, including everyone in the LGBTQ+ community as well as people of different races. My generation is also a lot more cynical than the older population which usually comes with a negative connotation but I believe you
