E-talk with Prof. Bobby Duffy ‘The Generation Myth’

Generational stereotypes are fuelling fake generational culture wars that are distracting us from the real trends and threats. In particular, inequality is becoming increasingly intergenerational, generational separation is a more serious problem than a battle between the age groups, and our chronic short-termism is preventing us from dealing with the biggest issues we face. Embedding longer-term thinking that connects the generations is vital, as this session will show, based on Professor Bobby Duffy’s new book.
