Dr. Jim Johnson: Disruptive Demographics

On October 24, Dr. Jim Johnson, William R. Kenan, Jr. Distinguished Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship at UNC's Kenan-Flagler Business School, shared research on six "disruptive" demographic trends, implications for our region and ideas for leveraging these changes into future economic advantage. The trends include "The Browning of America," "The End of Men?" and "The Silver Tsunami is About to Hit."

Johnson asked audience members to "buckle their seat belts" and prepare for a new normal.  Review his presentation.

“… a demographer with an uncanny knack for linking population trends to the economy, to you and me, to our grandparents and kids, and to our collective future …”    -          Mark Derewicz, Endeavors Magazine
