Laura Carstensen (Stanford) quoted in Bloomberg on baby boomers staying in the generational mix
"Baby Boomers Try to Stay in the Generational Mix as They Age" - Bloomberg. 9/19/2019.
"For the first time in history, there are multiple generations alive together for long stretches of time, and that's creating more contact and similarities among older, middle-aged, and young people," says Laura Carstensen, a Stanford psychology professor and director of the Stanford Center on Longevity. "When you have people in their 70s sitting next to kids in their 20s in classrooms and workplace cubicles, you get more creativity and productivity, research shows, and less age stereotyping."
