You are definitely right to be concerned about it. Not only are the boomers fueling the stock market with their retirement investing but they are also fueling the economy with their spending. The centre portion of the boomer bulge is currently passing through their peak spending years (approx. 47). They will all have passed through in about 10 years depending on when you figure the end of the boom was. This drop in spending coupled with a drop in the retirement savings rate could create some tough times for the market.You might want to look at some of the work on demographic investing:Harry S.
