Retiring Baby Boomers and Stock Market Capital Flows: Investment Theory Retiring Baby Boomers and Capital Flows

The Baby-Boomers

The Murky Future

It is hard to predict the long-term impact of the aging Baby Boomers on stock prices.

Countervailing demographics may intervene.

Immigrants from Latin American may absorb stocks dumped by retiring Boomers.

For example, a positive resolution of the problem of immigration from Latin America could increase the younger cohort to the point that they will be able to absorb securities dumped by the Baby Boomers.

If the Common Stock Legend persists, this may be effective.

However if the next generation returns to the dividend-loving mind set of their great grandfathers, the Baby Boomers will have a hard time.

Political-sociological speculations, such as this, are part of Capital Flow Analysis.

It should be noted, however, that although we may be aware of the forces in play, it is impossible to know the future.
