WRA 360 Episode 6:
The Roaring 1920s – in the 2020s?
with Mark Eppli
Jazz, art deco and the Model T: the iconic elements symbolic of the 1920s ushered in a period of transformation in all aspects of American life. Is this shift destined to repeat itself today? Are we in for a decade like the one we experienced a century ago? In this episode of WRA 360, economist, noted housing expert and Wisconsin native Dr. Mark J. Eppli explores the parallels between the 1920s and the 2020s. Taking a futuristic view of life, culture, technology and economics in the coming decade, and using the 1920s as an analogue, Dr. Eppli will discuss why the 1920s roared and whether we are in for a repeat 100 years later. Join us for a fun and informative session.
Discussion topics include:
• Reasons behind the 1920s “roar”
• The Spanish flu vs. COVID-19
• Polarizing social issues
• Automobile technologies
• Electricity-based manufacturing meets robotics
