AIQ issue 005. Millennials: the fall and rise of Generation Y
We all know what millennials are like, don’t we? The generation born between 1981 and 2000 have been characterised as workshy narcissists who would rather dine out on expensive avocado brunches than save for the future. But as our cover story shows, such stereotypes are wide of the mark.
In our Big Interview we speak to Andrew Scott, professor of economics at the London Business School and co-author of the award-winning book, The 100-Year Life. He discusses what increased life expectancy means for markets and economies.
Also in this issue, we look at the battle for innovation between China and the West. Once dismissed as the home of copycats and knock-offs, China is fast catching up with advanced economies in new tech, with major implications for investors.
