“Twice as many people (46% vs. 22%) said they personally would rather share things than own them.”
If this shift is underway in the way this article claims, it’s truly disruptive for our economic system. But I remain unconvinced:
- How different is the reaction of GenY in their 20s and 30s to the Boomers, peace not war, change the world, etc? Is this just a case of a new generation expressing their idealism and distinguishing themselves from the prior generation?
- What’s going on in the larger and faster growing economies that will largely drive economic trends globally in the next 50 years (i.e. India, Indonesia, Kenya, China, etc.)? Is there a similar shift?
