Brief: Young adults are faced with a very difficult economy. What they are doing to cope with these challenges illuminate forces that are changing business models and disrupting industries everywhere.
Description: Gone are the days of the paper route, lawn mowing, babysitting and fast-food jobs for people entering the job market. Even lemonade stands are against the law now. The most recent generations have experienced one of the most constrained and oppressed business environments the country has known since the New Deal. Unable to develop traditional business habits as children and actively prevented from entering the labor pool, young people in the last 15 years have turned to a new way of earning and living.
In response, young entrepreneurs have created a slew of service and distribution methodologies that are redefining trade, value and exchange. This class will take you on a tour of the perspectives and models of a new generation and will discuss the ramifications of their disruptive effect on business and social tradition.
