Characteristics of Baby Boomers

Baby boomers were prone to reject or redefine traditional values and they were linked to traits such as experimentalism, individualism, free spirit and social cause oriented living. As a group, they were a generation that received peak levels of income which made them the wealthiest, most active and most physically fit generation up to the era in which they arrived.

They could afford a lot with basic income and therefore spent excessively and unreasonably which makes a huge gap between them and today's 'millennials who are in a completely opposite position.
