Boomers still drive economy despite being ‘written off as old’

LONDON: Baby boomers still drive economy despite being written off by other generations as ‘too old and ineffective’.

Georgetown, Texas, is the fastest-growing city in the U.S. It’s largely thanks to the baby boomers.

Thousands of them have settled in an enormous planned community called Sun City Texas: 5,421 acres of single-family homes clustered around pools, fitness centers and pickleball courts, reserved mostly for buyers 55 and older. The hottest party is the yearly Mardi Gras parade and ball. The median age is 73.
