Here in Part 2, famed researcher and demographer Neil Howe, co-author of the best-selling book The Fourth Turning, explains why the weight of history strongly suggests we are headed into a decade-plus period of economic and social disruption that will transform our political, economic, financial and social systems.
Volatility will reign. Crushing inflation looks likely. We may see a stock market crash and widespead job losses. Perhaps even war.
But as with all preceding fourth turnings, Howe predicts we’ll come of it ok. Yes, with some bruises; but likely also with some net improvements for society.
