Where Hillary is winning over several vital demographics, namely minorities, the elderly, and the affluent, “the Donald” pulls his votes from other sources—mainly middle-aged, uneducated whites. The upcoming election, Thompson argues, will be a battleground of style, and “a referendum on everything other than policy—race, culture, and feelings.” In November, says Thompson, the vote may be more categorically binary than ever before.
As a senior editor for The Atlantic, Derek Thompson writes incisively about economics, the job market, technology, and entertainment. He’s also an expert on millennials—perhaps the generation most pivotal to our 21st-century economy. What do they value? What do they buy? And how will our economy change and grow around them? In eye-opening keynotes, Thompson pins down the millennial psyche and tells you how to navigate the new generation of workers—in marketing, in the workplace, and in society—and why you should care.
