Over at The Daily Beast, Joel Kotkin asks, “Are Millennials the Screwed Generation?” (Is there a less vulgar way to ask this question?) Here’s his answer:
Today’s youth, both here and abroad, have been screwed by their parents’ fiscal profligacy and economic mismanagement. Neil Howe, a leading generational theorist, cites the “greed, shortsightedness, and blind partisanship” of the boomers, of whom he is one, for having “brought the global economy to its knees.”
Yep, Kotkin blames the Baby Boomers. They’re not called the “Me Generation” for nothing.
