Summary "Demographics not only define who we are, where we live, and how our numbers change, but--for those who can read beyond the raw figures--they open up hidden business opportunities that lie ahead. What will happen when retiring Boomers free up jobs? How will Generation Y alter housing and transportation? Which states will have the most dynamic workforces? Will American manufacturing rebound as Asia's population boom stalls? Upside puts this powerful yet little-understood science to work finding answers. Demographer Kenneth Gronbach synthesises reams of data to show how generations impact markets and economies, and how to target promising trends." -- Provided by publisher.
