    (October 21, 1951- )
    Born in Santa Monica, California
    Best known for developing (with William Strauss) the Strauss-Howe generational theory
    Wrote 'Generations' (1991), '13th Gen' (1993), 'The Fourth Turning' (1997), and 'Millennials Rising' (2000)
    Theorized generational cycles in American history with fellow academic William Strauss
    His work tends to be lacking in hard empirical evidence.
    He has been accused by fellow academics of peddling in 'pseudoscience.'
    The New York Times described his generation theory as being 'about as scientific as astrology or a Nostradamus text.'
    He has been criticized for promoting the view that generational groupings are far more powerful than other social groupings like class, race, or religion.
    His books made a deep impression on Stephen Bannon, who wrote and directed the documentary 'Generation Zero,' based on his research findings.
    He coined the terms 'Gen-Xers' and 'millennials.'
    As a college student, he studied abroad in France and Germany.
    He has written a number of workplace application books about the Millennials’ impact on various sectors.
    He has coauthored numerous academic studies on the subject of aging and migration.
    He examined generational trends worldwide and identified similar generational cycles in different developed countries.
    He co-authored 'On Borrowed Time,' one of the early calls for budgetary reform, in which he may have foretold the Housing Crisis of 2008.
    His work has provided a unique lens through which young people could study and understand world history.
