Mr. Bohlen spoke of trust as being a huge issue among the different generations. Generation X doesn't really trust corporate or government because of things they've seen (Nixon, Enron, layoffs, are a few of MANY reasons). Also they are coming from families with a 51% divorce rate-- seeing that even family is difficult to trust.
He said that something hurting the world is that there isn't a lot of trust and its probably rightly so that there is not:
- People don't often tell their true intentions, especially once greed is involved.
- People are often looking for "what can you do for me?" and not worried about what they can do to return the favor or just earn the reward.
- Another big point he made was baby boomer's are very competitive and that is what corporations have been the last 30+ years. More progress would be made if businesses weren't trying to be better than the other, but make everything better.
Well, the guns are focusing! -- watch out world.
