I was reading an interesting white paper on the issues effecting FECs. While focused on fixed facilities, the demographic and economic trend lines have relevance for everyone on the forum.
Declines in births means smaller pool of potential clients to fight over.
Social trend of age compression means kids will move away from things theyview as "too baby" sooner than before.
Fiscal trend where the top 40% will spend 75% on entertainment.
The only silver lining is the affluent types who are most likely to buy will value quality over price.
The whole report can be found at
It is certainly worth a read whether you are an FEC or not.
