Millennials and the Economy
The Barron’s cover for the April 29, 2013 issue proclaims “Here Come the Millennials” and discusses the impact of this generation on the economy. You can find the article, “On the Rise” in print at Fondren Library Center, Browsing Collection, Newspapers or online in both ABI/Inform and Factiva. The print version offers a table, graph and timeline not found in the electronic versions. The author points out that this is the largest generation, larger even than the Baby Boomers, and that they will impact industries such as housing, automobiles, and financial services.
