Summary
The enormous size of the Baby-Boom generation ensures that when it sneezes the nation catches a cold. Today, the United States has pneumonia, struggling to recover from the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. The collapse and subsequent paralysis of the housing market has decimated the net worth of Boomers, millions of them on the brink of retirement. The seventh edition of The Baby Boom: Americans Born 1946 to 1964 is your strategic guide to the changing socioeconomic status of this important generation of Americans
