The Cultural Identity of a world changing generation

The Cultural Identity of a world changing generation

The baby boomers were the first generation of Earth to be raised on Pop culture and television.   
The culture at that time is more hedonistic as compared to the past.  
Music that drove their parents crazy became their purpose in life. This explains the phenomenal fame of legends like Elvis and The Beatles (Who incidentally till today, remains more popular than most one-hit wonder pop groups or modern icons)  
Big names like Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Led Zeppelin defined the voice of that generation.   
In other words, they set the standard to what is ‘hot’ and what is not!  
The boomers were living in an age where Music seemed to have a more influential power compared to weapons of mass destruction. In the past, people would think you were crazy if you worn torn clothing or upside-down garments. People at that time were not as hard up as today if they were to miss the latest movie or driving the hottest car in town.  
In other words, buying power and market demand were not as trend sensitive in the past compared as today.  
If I were to target the boomer market, what would I be focusing on? Cosmetics and beauty seem to be making a fortune today. A slimming ad would cost tens of thousands of dollars and newspapers and magazines publish this on a DAILY basis.  
Gyms and fitness equipment are also a hot market. You wouldn’t imagine someone in the 19th century invent something like a gym. The people there would be too busy plowing fields or working in a factory (and they would get all the exercise they need). The boomers have a relative easier life and are able to focus more on those pleasures above.  
So where does it health and wellness industry come in?
