#65 - Neil Howe - Millennials, Secular Investing & 'The Fourth Turning"
In a bumper episode, I speak to Neil Howe, Managing Director of Demographics at Hedgeye. Neil is a renowned authority on social change, an acclaimed bestselling author, and America’s leading thinker on today’s generations – who they are, what motivates them, and how they will shape our future.
Vice President Al Gore called Howe’s first title, ‘Generations’, "the most stimulating book on American history that I have ever read", while the Boston Globe is prepared to label Howe one of “the great American prophets”, if predictions in his book ‘The Fourth Turning’, come to pass.
Neil has also worked as a consultant and advisor for companies like Blackstone, the Concord Coalition, and the Global Aging Initiative at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies.
Frequently featured on shows like USA Today, CNN, the New York Times, and CBS' 60 Minutes, we were extremely lucky to speak to Neil, and I took the chance to quiz him on how his theory can be applied to today’s financial markets – enjoy the interview!
