Coming of age in a recession has set back Millennials for decades. The good news? In the age of abundance, they could turn out to be pretty great decades, anyway.
So the positive point is that everything is cheap: culture, clothing, food. You don’t have a job, you can’t have a family because you can’t afford raising kids, but hey, endless free Internet! (Wait, did the author think about the cost of a broadband line? And how cheap food is ruining the environment/people’s health/economies of some places? And how cheap clothing is made?)
I would have thought we were better than that. Now, I don’t think we should aim for being better off than previous generations: that’s something we might not reach anyway, and I don’t think endless growth is sustainable. But that’s for another discussion.
