Dr David K Foot
Author of the number-one bestseller Boom Bust & Echo: How to Profit from the Coming Demographic Shift, David Foot is an outspoken and controversial demographics expert—one who can bring demographic statistics to life, and make the aging of society relevant to any specific-interest group. Foot explores how changing demographics, especially the aging of the massive “boomer generation” and the entering of their children (the “echo generation”) into the marketplace, will inevitably redefine society’s needs.
Foot is author of the number-one bestselling books Boom Bust & Echo: How to Profit from the Coming Demographic Shift and Boom, Bust & Echo: Profiting from the Demographic Shift in the 21st Century. He is a professor of economics at the University of Toronto, where he has received numerous awards—including the “National 3M Award for Teaching Excellence” (administered by the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education), and the “University of Toronto undergraduate teaching award” (twice).
