About this title


Demographics - the study of human populations - are a powerful, but often underused, method for understanding the past and predicting the future. In Boom, Bust & Echo 2000: Profiting from the Demographic Shift in the New Millennium, economist David Foot and journalist Daniel Stoffman take a look at the importance of demographics. They try to predict what baby boomers, "baby busters", the "echo generation", and other groups in the coming years can expect. This fully-revised edition of the highly successful Boom, Bust &Echo contains the most recent information on demographic trends in Canada and how they can affect your future.

Demographics play a critical role in the nation's economy and social life, and they affect every one of us as individuals. The more we understand demographic realities, the better prepared we will be to cope with them - and to turn them to our advantage.

In Canada, the aging of those born between 1947 and 1966 - the baby boom generation - has changed the economy, driven housing and other markets, and transformed social mores and lifestyles. As the boomers enter mid-life, as the "baby-busters" behind them come of age, and as the "echo generation," the children of the boomers, reaches maturity, how will the country change? Where will Canadians choose to live? What are the prospects for employment? Which investments will be favoured? What lies ahead for Canada's health care and education systems?

Everyone who plans for the future - whether it be for a large corporation, a retail store, a school system, a nonprofit enterprise, or for personal well-being - needs effective forecasting tools. Boom, Bust & Echo 2000 goes beyond the traditional methods of focus groups and opinion surveys to an analysis of statistical facts. Here is an original and indispensable work filled with arresting insights, provocative assertions, and practical answers.

Boom, Bust &Echo was the national phenomenon that demonstrated the power of demographics to help us understand the past and forecast the future. Now Boom Bust & Echo 2000 reveals Canada's demographic profile at the turn of the century when a new population shift will have profound implications for our economic and social life.

*Why, despite the inevitable market dips, stocks are a sound investment for the long term. * How the maturing of the echo generation makes the retail environment more complex. *Why private health care is flourishing while public health care needs reconstructive surgery. *How the aging of the echo is transforming Canada's education system. *Why our future prosperity depends upon understanding demographics, in Canada and around the world.

"Seldom is a book published that becomes required reading for just about everyone - business executives, entrepreneurs, policy makers, politicians, planners and educators ... It's a course on the importance of demographics and how the patterns they reveal can be capitalized on by forward-thinkers." - Marketing Magazine

"If you own a bicycle helmet you might want to wear it while you read [this] engaging study... Otherwise you could give yourself a headache as you periodically slap your forehead and cry out, 'Now why didn't I think of that?' " - Edmonton Journal
