Neil Howe

Author Neil Howe returns to Financial Sense Newshour to discuss his concept of The Fourth Turning and the differences between the Millennials (Occupy Wall Street) and Generation X (The Tea Party Movement).

Neil Howe, Founding Partner and President at Life Course Associates, best-selling author and national speaker, is a renowned authority on generations in America. He gives readers and audiences powerful insights into who today’s generations are, what motivates them as consumers and workers, and how they will shape our national future. Howe’s broadly cyclical perspective—oriented around familiar generational life stories—will put "the long term" into a stunning yet personal focus that will not soon be forgotten. Howe has coauthored several books on generations with William Strauss, Generations (1991), 13th Gen (1993) and The Fourth Turning (1997).
