There’s all this talk about how we’re going to have a big burst of spending coming out of the pandemic and then it’s just going to cool off again. Well, millennials are 25% of the population and are essentially going into their peak spending and earning years. Historically, the ages 45-55 tend to be when you spend the most money. You have household formation, kids, and more big-ticket items that you’re buying. With the largest cohort of any population in America going right into that, it’s like the baby boomers back in the 80s’, it’s going to lead to a lot of spending. Then you have this huge infrastructure bill coming down the line and when that passes that will be even more spending. Top all that off with the massive amount of inventories businesses are trying to build back up…doesn’t sound like a slowdown is anywhere in the near future.
