New Generation. New Economy. New Opportunities

The Frey Institute continued its tradition of discussing topical questions and issues relevant to a multigenerational audience in the fall of 2009. As students approach graduation during a recession and a shortage of jobs, economists, policy experts and political leaders discussed the opportunities and challenges that the economy presents for them, specifically the challenges Generation Y, or Millennials, face, but also the unique opportunities they may find in the changing economy. Morey Winograd and Michael D. Hais, co-authors of Millennial Makeover: MySpace, YouTube and the Future, gave the keynote address. U.S. Rep. Suzanne Kosmas also spoke along with Anya Kamenetz, author and Yahoo! Finance expert; Maya Enista, CEO of,; and Stan Gerberer, an economist from Fishkind and Associates.
