Summary "Ironically, before this generation was known as Generation X, the prevailing wisdom (circa 1985) was that this group would have it pretty cushy in almost every way: as Baby Boomers aged their way through society, vast opportunities would open up for the smaller demographic coming up behind them; colleges would be competing with each other to attract the best students; as boomers moved out of the workforce there would be more jobs available than could be filled; increasing pay and benefits; and - get this - there would be a flood of affordable housing as boomers traded up! As the saying goes, prediction is very hard, especially about the future ..." From the bookjacket.
