Our Mission Statement
The worsening financial and economic crisis affects all our lives. It has caused our civic leaders, clergy, and media to analyze and critique our decisions, habits, and lifestyles. In the midst of all this, what has become unequivocally clear, is that most coverage and analysis of the crisis fails to address the impact on the Echo Boomer generation.
We do not see this as a problem - but as an opportunity. Business and economic trends do not affect Echo Boomers the same way as the generations that precede us. Our opinions and perspectives matter, especially since the Echo Boom generation is three times the size of Gen-X. As Baby Boomers are preparing to retire, we are preparing to fill their roles in every part of society. Echo Boomers are just stepping onto the stage, and it'd be a good time to listen to the next presenter.
As Echo Boomers and recent graduates of an undergraduate honors business program, we created this blog to offer our opinions on the effects of business and economic developments on our generation. Our hope is the voice of our generation will be heard as we begin to take our place as the dominant generation of society.
