Ask A Genius 228 – Making War, Making Babies

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

July 14, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: So, you have a generation, the main old people now, were born, well they’re depression babies, they were born in the late 20’s are really old now, and you have the people born in the 1930’s just before the boomers.  And those people will get to live on average into their, probably early 90’s.  Which means a lot of them will leave into the 2020’s and some of them may make it to 2030.

And then you have the boomers.  The boomers have been changing the face of aging just by demographic force.  Boomers were born from ‘45 through ’64.  Of course, they’re a bigger presence in the U.S.  Because the term largely applies to the U.S., but applies to the rest of the world too because the rest of world, World War II ended in ’45, and so people stopped killing each other and started making babies.
