Remember the “Baby Boomers” during post World War II – The population explosion of new infants immediately and the War. About 77 million babies were born in the United States alone, making a total of nearly 40% of the American population. These 77 million people born between 1946 and 1964 in the US alone and the birth rates across the world spiked.
However, history has it that the idea behind the Baby Boomer was caused by two factors: People wanting to start the families that they put off during World War II and the Great Depression. They were also optimistic that the coming era would be safe and prosperous. This was indeed true in all indication. The late 1940s and 1950s generally saw increases in wages, thriving businesses, and an increase in the variety and quantity of products for consumers. Those who invested in the baby industry made a fortune.
