I'm just saying, boomers' were much more set up for success in the 'real world' back then than the current generation is.  And you could attribute that to good descriptors of the boomers, and that's fine, but you cannot pretend their inordinate wealth (compared to previous older generations) hasn't come at the expense of those younger than them.

I just think the boomers have acted like an ancient culture, wanting to be buried with all of their things, instead of investing in the future of the society.  I think it's mostly been innocently done by the masses of boomers, but the top influencers have been aware of it and haven't cared.

Every older generation runs things for a certain time, but things are especially tight for the younger generations now, financially.
it wasn't good for a young person getting out of school in 1981 with 30 year mortgage rates at 17%

for me, I've saved for my daughter's education and for my retirement

I wasn't sure Social Security would still be there for me in retirement
So, you're right, I haven't spent money trying to promote the future, just wanted to be self sufficient and not a drag on society

What I'm saying isn't eye-opening at all....except to a board full of boomers.

Not trying to stir the pot, just a tangent that none of you will acknowledge.  Forget I said anything.

I'm sure it's dozens of things, many of which I don't know enough about, but it's mostly concerning housing costs and college cost, with the corresponding debt. 

It was MUCH better to be 35 years old 25 years ago than it is now.  And it's not just those two big factors "happening" - the boomers are the decison-makers, in the aspects that happen to have such a thing. 

Every older generation runs things for a certain time, but things are especially tight for the younger generations now, financially.
Bullshit. I’m solid gen X, born in ‘75. You hardly ever hear much about this generation.  It’s almost as if we went straight from boomers to millennials. I work with and know so many millennials it ain’t even funny 
The vast majority of millennials that I know went straight from their parents house into a better, nicer house. They took out vast amounts of student loans to go to college for degrees that don’t pay squat.  They bought rv’s, boats, and motorcycles all before the age of 30. They drowned themselves in so much debt but all you ever hear about is how boomers made it hard for them. 

They never saw how most boomers, my parents generation, started out with a small wedding. A small house. Maybe they had college, maybe they didn’t. They toiled at shitty jobs, working their way up, saving, increasing their lifestyle bit by bit. Later in life their fruits paid off, they were able to live the good life. 

millenials always skip the toiling and sweat part. Well, most do.  I do know a few who are frugal and building their future. 

Being sandwiched between generations I feel like I know them both well enough.

Can we bypass the half dozen "yeah, but I know someone" anecdotes that don't dispel anything already said?

Why do you get a free pass to single out a segment of our population and say they are the cause of todays problems

reminds me of what Hitler did against the Jews

my post about saving money actually agrees with your post
