If conventional wisdom is to be believed, the baby boomer generation would be retiring in an orderly fashion at a rate of 4þ million per year. However, that generation, born between 1946 and 1964, has rarely, if ever, done anything in an orderly fashion. In fact, the majority of baby boomers are still in the labor force at the highest annual rate for people their age in more than half a century.
And general demographic trends and a series of historic economic events have been combined to redefine retirement for this generation, just as they redefined schooling, work, marriage and family earlier in their lives. The boomers, nearly 80 million of them, disrupted the conventional wisdom, in part, because they were so much larger than their parents’ generation – by a lot, nearly double. This forced our society to adapt to them all along the way and will require us to continue to do so.
