Millennial Economics: The changing contours of dismal science
Lecture Summary:
Generally speaking, the term "Millennial" refers to a generation. A cohort that has joined the workforce sometime in the last decade. In many countries, they already account for the lion's share of the working age population.

Millennials are rewriting the socioeconomic norms. Markets have been quick to put a premium on the potential transformation. While affected businesses are scrambling to cope with these tectonic shifts. These shifts are not solely originating from this demographic group. Early indicators suggest that their choices are already changing the consumption patterns of the larger population. The digital disruption is quietly buttressing this trend.

In this exciting mini-lecture, Prof. Sharma tries to put these changes in perspective and questions the continuing validity of the traditional economic paradigm.

Registration is required, please sign-up online using this registration form by December 7.
