19 AUG 2016
TOPIC: Millennials

All eyes are on Millennials, Baby Boomers and increasingly Gen-Z, but according to Goldman Sachs Research’s Hugo Scott-Gall, Gen-X is an underappreciated influencer when it comes to the economy.

Scott-Gall explains the implications for the auto industry, real estate, and more.

Gen-X is right in the sweet spot for consumption… Economically, they’re very significant.
