As most countries enjoyed a healthier economy post –world wars, this was favourable to any returning soldier to find solid jobs, affordable homes and subsidised education and vocational training that gave them the required financial security so as to settle down and start their families.

Boomers have grown up at a time of dramatic social change and they witnessed some of the greatest social changes in the world’s history, with dramatic shift in social, economic and educational opportunities.
