Keynote – The Baby Boomer Bomb

Professor Robert Reich


As baby boomers age, major issues associated with a growing older population are gaining more attention, e.g., Social Security, Medicare and financing an extended retirement. Retirees confront these issues on a daily basis. Professor Reich will share his knowledgeable perspectives on these and other issues, suggesting how they can be addressed in an informed and responsible manner. In addition, he will discuss the older population’s formidable political leverage – how as individuals and as a collective entity, their “clout” can be used wisely and in a manner benefitting future generations.
