His response? “I’d rather Uber and be able to play video games during the ride.” But he still wants to sit in the driver’s seat. That got me thinking about the infrastructure that influences the behaviors of younger generations—big data, artificial intelligence (AI), mobility and 5G—and how investors should account for that behavior in their portfolios. Last time, I discussed the investment implications of the wellness economy by way of Gen Z’s environmentally and socially conscious palates.
