Dr. Coughlin spoke about disruptive demographics -- a rapidly aging population, a falling birthrate, and a delayed ascent into adulthood for post-adolescent Millennials. These changes will result, Dr. Coughlin says, in "profound changes for real estate, profound changes for land use, and certainly profound changes for mobility."
