Clark Kerr’s Very Bad Prediction About 1960s College Students
I was reading Hollywood’s Last Golden Age: Politics, Society, and the Seventies Film in America and came across this quote at the top of Chapter 2 about college students in the 1960s. I thought it was a great example for my collection of bad predictions that I use to help people understand the value of scenario planning.
The employers will love this generation. They aren’t going to press many grievances. They are going to be easy to handle. There aren’t going to be any riots.
