Two huge, fascinating trends are converging in the U.S.: the rise of connectivity through social media and mobile technology and the rise of Latino millennials in population and also economic and cultural influence.
Emerging nations are becoming more connected to technology and are embracing the Internet and smartphones. In the past two years, the percentage of people in emerging and developing nations who say they use the Internet and own a smartphone has risen substantially.
Many millennials are cautious about making investments in stocks, and many distrust Wall Street all together. Those who are investing are putting their money into companies and industries they care about or are interested in.
Millennials may have different opinions on political and social issues than older generations, but one thing they have in common with their parents and grandparents is their outlook on the future of the United States. Millennials are concerned about the country's future, just like Generation Xers and Baby Boomers were when they were young.
