How entitlement programs like Social Security will cope with legions of Boomers retiring is unknown.

Jon Henschen’s July 17 article, “Boomers to Cause Markets to Go Bust” addresses the impact of the baby boomers on housing, education, real estate and the stock market. Henschen discusses how as boomers retire and exit the economic-contribution side of society, we’ll see a reversal in the bubbles they created, with the stock market poised for increasing downside impact over the next 25 years.

Opening with humor, Henschen references the now infamous “Lawn Chair Larry,” San Pedro resident Larry Walters, who out of sheer boredom, filled and tied 42 8-foot weather balloons to his lawn chair and took flight. He ultimately reached altitudes of 15,000 feet and drifted into the controlled airspace of LAX airport, prompting pilots to report the safety hazard to the control tower.

Henschen updates Lawn Chair Larry by replacing him with Uncle Sam to illustrate the numerous bubbles in our economy. He then turns to birth rate statistics, and charts from Mike Maloney’s recent presentation, “The Baby Boom Tsunami That is Set to Drown the Economy,” to show the shifting demographics. These charts show how aging boomers are transitioning from the contributing side of the economy to the segment that needs financial support.
