Neil Howe On The Fourth Turning: What Will Happen Next?

They say that history rhymes.

That civilizations and societies tend to follow cycles -- boom/bust, feast/famine, war/peace, cultural experimentation/a retrenchment to the “old ways”.

Famed demographer Neil Howe, the author of the best-selling book The Fourth Turning, lays out his prediction that today’s society has entered the "bust" part of our current cycle -- where the status quo falls apart, often chaotically -- to be replaced by a new, hopefully better, order.

What should we expect from this period of disruption?

How bad will things get? How long will it last?

And are there steps we can take now to improve our odds of persevering?

In this new interview, Neil provides a highly-detailed picture of what to expect from the coming decade-plus of disruption.

This kind of expert insight is like an instruction manual for successfully making it through the challenges we face ahead.
