Exploring The Effects Of Demographics With Dr. David Foot

June 14, 2017

Welcome to Encore, brought to you by BoomersPlus! On this weekly show, hosted by Costas Halavrezos, we examine the world of the baby boomers through a variety of exciting avenues. We are joined each week by an expert guest to discuss their field and how it relates to the audience of the boomers.

Demographics, the study of the structure of human population, explains much of what happens. Everything from the baby boomer generation now reach retirement age, to the effects that will have on Canada’s economy, and how governments should be preparing now for the post-boomer years. Today on Encore we’ll meet the outspoken and occasionally controversial, David Foot, an economist at the University of Toronto, and author of the best-selling book, Boom, Bust & Echo. He contends that demographics effect two-thirds of everything. With this understanding, a business, a government, or you will have a strong foundation on which to build a vision for the future.

Enjoy the show and check back next week for the next episode!
