From the Back Cover:

Demographics are about everyone: who you are, where you've been, and where you're going. Demographics explain about two-thirds of everything: which products will be in demand, where job opportunities will occur, what school enrolments will be, when house values will rise or drop, what kinds of food people will buy and what kinds of cars they will drive. Boom, Bust & Echo gives you the power to anticipate changes like these and to profit from the coming demographic shift.

About the Author:

David K. Foot is an economist and demographer at the University of Toronto and a much sought-after speaker and consultant to corporations, associations, and governments on the implications of demographics for private and public policy. His academic research has stimulated debate on such issues as marketing, organizational change, human resources management, housing, education, employment, and immigration.

Prof. Foot holds a doctorate in economics from Harvard and is the author of numerous scholarly works and popular articles on the economic and social impact of demographic change. He is a two-time recipient of the University of Toronto undergraduate student teaching award, and in 1992 he received a 3M Award for Teaching Excellence from the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

Daniel Stoffman is a graduate of the University of British Columbia and the London School of Economics. He is an award-winning journalist who has written on business, politics, and social issues for Canada's major magazines, including Report on Business, Canadian Business, Saturday Night, Toronto Life, and Canadian Living. In 1991 he was granted an Atkinson Fellowship to pursue research in the area of Canadian immigration policy; the result was a widely publicized study of current government practices and recommendations for their reform, Toward a More Realistic Immigration Policy for Canada (1993).
