OUTRAGE! Is anybody else between the ages of 20 and 30 tired of being written off by the media as a 'lost generation'? It's utter nonesense!
It's true employment is down, and we have more debt than previous generations (also, thanks to previous generations)-- education, ecological, credit card, etc. But we're being judged on recently failed economic paradigms: measuring growth, creditworthiness, even what is and is not valuable within or to a society are all paradigms that are now in transition. The media is quick to trumpet how the financial system and most of the things we know about economics are now defunct, so why is it still making value judgements on those paradigms?
