Understanding the Profound Demographic Shifts Ahead

What counties, states, regions, countries and continents will flourish, and which will be challenged because of shifting demography? As a forecasting tool, demographics are unparalleled for seeing what’s ahead in world culture, economics, politics, commerce and government.

During this insightful webcast, demographer Kenneth W. Gronbach will lead you into his fascinating world of counting people. He’ll explain to you why demographics precipitate economics, and not the other way around.

Ken’s demographic perspective is very macro, big picture and long term. His strategies are often integrated into strategic plans in diverse sectors because of their uncanny accuracy.

Demography is a science of simplicity and fascination. Join Ken for this exciting presentation and enjoy the ride.
