Gen X to lead?

Nah, we just like to sit back, mock those in charge, and never put ourselves in a position to get ridiculed. Besides, the boomers plan on giving the steering wheel to their Gen Y kids anyway. Unaffectionately known as the "Luke Russert Effect".
Look out Baby Boomer leaders, Generation X is about to take over. Generation X ("Xers"), born between 1960 and 1980, is not going to lead like the Baby Boomer Generation ("Boomers"). Xers are also leading in a very different world economy and in a very different business model than that of their Boomer counterparts.

What are the essential differences in leadership and work attitudes between the two generations? And what changes will Xers drive in the workplace, in collaboration with the dominant Boomers, or without their cooperation? This article will examine those questions along with insights from a representative Generation X leader--Jason McLean, President and CEO of the Vancouver-based McLean Group of Companies and Chairman of the Vancouver Board of Trade.

I read where congress is thinking of changing the retirement age to 70 - just like a bunch of boomers.
