Good points, but I think 'Gypsies' will make it through this current correction.
Why Generation Y Yuppies Are Unhappy http://www.huffingtonpost.com/wait-but-why/generation-y-unhappy_b_3930620.html
Lucy is part of Generation Y, the generation born between the late 1970s and the mid 1990s. She's a unique brand of yuppie, one who thinks they are the main character of a very special story. Only issue is this one thing: Lucy's kind of unhappy.

Boomer business owners are finally ready to cash in, reshaping the economy. Says IBJ.com: "First gradually and then in a flood, mind-boggling assets from the sales will surge to heirs, savings accounts, luxury cars, vacation homes, pet philanthropic pursuits and anything else the generation fancies—reconfiguring the economy." Even if this prediction is a bit breathless, it's a development worth watching.

Think you'll retire like your parents? Really? Wrap your mind around this, and get ready for a new life plan:
"Children are typically richer than their parents, with each successive generation richer than the previous one. At least that's been the economic pattern, as society has gotten wealthier, up until recently.
But for members of Generation X and Generation Y, something has gone off track. According to a recently issued report from the Urban Institute called "Lost Generations? Wealth Building Among Young Americans," Generation X and Generation Y have accumulated less wealth than their parents did at their age, a quarter century ago...."

So, how does that sit with you?

Whatever you think of her politics, she was a pioneer. RIP
Longtime White House journalist Helen Thomas has died at age 92 after a long illness, sources told CNN Saturday.

Perhaps it's time the generations stopped side-eyeing each other and started engaging? Jean Case, makes, um, the case, for Forbes. "There’s no doubt that we’re living in a disrupted world, a time full of challenges – but also a time of opportunity to explore new models and new approaches."

Is Gen-X missing it's mid-life crisis?

Hardly, I'd say, but check this out: While this piece focuses only on a narrow slice of college-educated Gen-X (and buys too heavily into the "slacker" notion in the first place) it does nail the facts that: 1) most of life's traditional milestones have been post-phoned for Gen-Xers; 2) Divorce ( and I would add for many, growing up in single parent households) left its mark on how Gen-Xers build families.

Do you think Gen-X is missing its mid-life crisis?
Gutted by the economy, shipwrecked by nostalgia, Gen X stares down a midlife crisis. Winona Ryder can't save it

Fewer and fewer young adults are leaving the nest -- especially the men. Look out for the renewed surge of "Sandwich Generation" "Apron Strings" articles that are sure to come. Reports Pew Research: "In 2012, 36% of the nation’s young adults ages 18 to 31—the so-called Millennial generation—were living in their parents’ home, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data. This is the highest share in at least four decades and represents a slow but steady increase over the 32% of their same-aged counterparts who were living at home prior to the Great Recession in 2007 and the 34% doing so when it officially ended in 2009....The men of the Millennial generation are more likely than the women to be living with their parents—40% versus 32%—continuing a long-term gender gap in the share of young adults who do so...."

We have to try harder to untangle the habits of youth from our definitions of what makes the Millennial generation unique... I'm looking at you Slackers and Hippies. Michelle Adams breaks it down: "Alright, New York Times, another article stating that millennials are a sex-obsessed, commitment-afraid group of people who hook up to pursue our careers. How many times do I have to say that we are not the only generation that has hooked up before?"

What will happen to the army of younger Boomers being squeezed out of the job market before retirement? For now, it means unemployment or underemployment for many. The crucial question is what will all that talent and experience create once the smoke clears...

Had we done more on the moon perhaps it would be different? Even Boomers come in at less than 20%.
A small percentage of Americans still view Armstrong’s walk on the moon as a top American achievement.
