Milton Ezrati on "Thirty Tomorrows: The Next Three Decades of Globalization, Demographics & How We Live"
Wednesday, September 17, 2014, 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM

Over the next three decades, aging populations in the US, Europe and Japan will begin to threaten our way of life. The ever-increasing pool of retirees will burden relatively diminished workforces, slowing the pace of growth and straining public and private finances. In stark contrast, emerging economies will enjoy the benefits of large, youthful and eager workforces. These differences will set the tone for decades to come. But contrary to much of the media’s downbeat treatment of the issue, we can survive and even prosper. Join us for a lunchtime event with author Milton Ezrati, senior economist and market strategist for Lord, Abbett & Co. and the author of Thirty Tomorrows.

Talk will be followed by Q&A and book signing. $5 tickets include Museum admission; Museum members and students free. Register online today.
