Bull Market Babies


Bull Market Babies
n.
Another name for the generation born since 1980.
Example Citation:
"Nearly 80 million baby boomers in their late 30s to mid-50s make up half of the workforce and 70 percent of American management. The next wave of Xers is nearly 40 percent smaller.
That means a serious leadership shortfall until Generation Y (a.k.a. the 'Echo Boom' or 'Bull Market Babies') kicks in with its legion of 72 million."
— Cheryl Hall, "A Gen-X State of Mind," The Dallas Morning News
