Baby Boomers

BoomersSS

The Baby Boomers are labeled as such because right after WWII there was a boom in births. After the war, there was a great optimism in America and a period of affluence. This prosperity was evident in suburban living.  Land was plentiful and homes were larger than apartment living.  It was more conducive to larger families.

  • Boomers are considered non-conformists as they led the protest against the Vietnam war, liberal expression of sexuality, women’s rights and various other liberal causes.
  • The Boomers had more discretionary income than other generations.
  •  Credit cards were introduced so you didn’t have to save any more.
  • Community involvement was encouraged.
  • Personal gratification was prevalent during this time.

Boomers are now headed for retirement!

Until Next Monday…
