Neil Howe is the Managing Director of Demography at Hedgeye Risk Management, an independent financial research firm. Howe is a renowned authority on generations and social change in America. An acclaimed bestselling author and speaker, he is the nation's leading thinker on today's generations—who they are, what motivates them, and how they will shape America's future. A historian, economist, and demographer, Howe is also a recognized authority on global aging, long-term fiscal policy, and migration. He was a senior associate at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and the Global Aging Institute, both in Washington D.C. Howe has co-authored numerous studies for CSIS (including the Aging Vulnerability Index and pioneering studies on pension reform in China and South Korea). Howe has written over a dozen books on generations, demographic change, and fiscal policy, many of them with William Strauss. Howe and Strauss' first book, Generations (1991), is a history of America told as a sequence of generational biographies. Vice President Al Gore called it "the most stimulating book on American history that I have ever read" and sent a copy to every member of Congress. Newt Gingrich called it "an intellectual tour de force." Of their book The Fourth Turning (1997), The Boston Globe wrote, "If Howe and Strauss are right, they will take their place among the great American prophets." Howe and Strauss originally coined the term "Millennial Generation" in 1991, and wrote the pioneering book on this generation, Millennials Rising (2000). His work has been featured frequently by media outlets including The Washington Post, The New York Times, CNN, and CBS' 60 Minutes.

Previous works include On Borrowed Time (1989; reissued 2004), a pioneering call for budgetary reform Howe co-authored with Peter G. Peterson, as well as The Graying of the Great Powers (2008) with Richard Jackson. Howe is currently working on his next book, a follow-up to the bestselling The Fourth Turning, to be released in 2022. Howe received his B.A. at U.C. Berkeley and later earned graduate degrees in economics and history from Yale University.


Join us for a discussion with Neil Howe where he will offer insight into his groundbreaking demographic theory and explain exactly why he wrote those prophetic words decades before a global pandemic, worldwide economic shutdown or contested elections were even imagined realities

 “A national crisis of immense proportions will occur around 2020.”

Believe it or not, Neil Howe and William Strauss wrote those fateful words in 1991. They went on to expand their theory in their 1997 book The Fourth Turning, predicting that this was just where America would be today. The mood across America is changing rapidly. We are in a new period of national urgency, a global pandemic crisis, with new worries about financial collapse, nuclear proliferation, terrorism, and global instability. Howe and Strauss uncovered a remarkable pattern in American history, discovering a cycle of recurring eras driven by generational changes. 

Each ticket includes a copy of The Fourth Turning
