Millenials Screwed by the Boomer Generation?

That is the focus of this interesting article.

"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.”

I don't buy all his arguments but he does make some good points. And it is very tough now for young people finishing school and trying to get a good job, or any job, for that matter.
