The Pig and the Python: How to Prosper from the Aging Baby Boom


The Pig and the Python: How to Prosper from the Aging Baby Boom Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why is the stock market booming? And why is it expected to triple and quadruple in value over the next 10 years? Why "This is one of the best-researched books on demographics I have ever read!"— Elaine Garzarelli, Ph.D., president, Garzarelli Capital, Inc.

Why is the stock market booming? And why is it expected to triple and quadruple in value over the next 10 years? Why did the real estate market collapse? How can you spot new investment opportunities? What's the best way to prepare for a secure, happy retirement?

This entertaining tale answers all these questions, and more, showing that the formula for financial success is to watch the baby-boom bulge as it works its way through the python of the financial system.

Pieter and Meredith DeMarco are in their late 30s. They have just suffered a business setback and have moved from their suburban house to a rented house near downtown Boston.

The future does not look all that bright for the DeMarcos and their two young children — until their neighbor Hazen, a demographer who advises companies on baby-boom trends, takes an interest in them and helps them put their financial house in order.

This inspiring book will help you put your financial affairs in order, too!

"An illuminating tale of a boomer couple preparing for a secure future."— David Chilton, author of The Wealthy Barber

"Baby-boom trends are the key to creating wealth. This fascinating book tells you how."— Harry Dent Jr., author of The Great Boom Ahead
