The Leisure Economy offers a provocative and insightful look at thecoming sea change in the North American economy. As millions ofbaby boomers begin to retire, the U.S. and Canadian economies willbe flooded with people who literally have time on their hands. Andin the workforce, the boomers will be replaced by generations withvery different attitudes from the boomers. Gen X and Gen Yunderstand the worth of leisure time-and when they're in charge,they just might demand some.
As Linda Nazareth explains, the shift away from an intense focuson work towards leisure will make for some profound shocks to ourlives, industries and institutions. Lost in the day-to-day frenzyof the time-crunch economy, many have yet to consider what liesahead and what these changes really mean. For businesses, the shockwill be the rudest, but whether you are an investor, a consumer, abusiness owner or a worker, you need to stay ahead of thecurve.
The Leisure Economy gives you a fresh look at the way thateconomics, demographics and attitude will force profound changes inthe North American economy.
