Are You Leading With An Eye On 2050?
Today's thought to ponder for business leaders:
The number of Americans age 65 and older will grow from 40 million today to 88.5 million in 2050. That projection from the U.S. Census presents an opportunity for business leaders who have their eye on 2050, even though that's 38 years away.
Think of the opportunity if you can create a product or service, or adapt your existing offerings, to meet the needs of an America that will look very different in 2050 than it does today.
Need even more convincing? Consider these additional projections:
- The number of Americans age 85 and older will grow from 5.8 million today to 19 million in 2050.
- The number of Centenarians in the U.S. will grow from 105,000 today to 601,000 in 2050.
