Baby Boomers are a generation of people born between 1940 and 1965, following the silent generation. They have shaped the modern world after World War 2.
Boomers are often characterized as hardworking and optimistic. They grew up during great economic prosperity, reaping the benefits by attending college in record numbers and buying homes at a young age.
Baby boomers started families later in life than their parents and tended to be more involved in their children’s lives. As a result, Baby Boomers have had a profound impact on both the economy and the culture.
