I spent the weekend at The Economist World In 2011, an event dedicated to making predictions for the year to come. The event’s host, novelist Kurt Andersen, had some comments I thought were particularly germane to our readers.
He described the Zombie culture and the Mayan 2012 apocalypse prediction as Boomer narcissism:
“The first Boomers are just starting to turn 65 and they say ‘I’m about to die therefore the world is going to end.”
Hyperbole or astute observation?
More on the event coming soon.
