Next America Boomers, Millennials, and the Looming Generational Showdown

The America of the near future will look nothing like the America of the recent past. America is in the throes of a demographic overhaul. Huge generation gaps have opened up in our political and social values, our economic well-being, our family structure, our racial and ethnic identity, our gender norms, our religious affiliation, and our technology use. Today?s Millennials?well-educated, tech savvy, underemployed twenty-somethings?are at risk of becoming the first generation in American history to have a lower standard of living than their parents. Meantime, more than 10,000 Baby Boomers are retiring -- relatively Drawing on Pew Research Center?s extensive archive of public opinion surveys and demographic data, The Next America.

  • "For the first time in its recent history, America faces the prospect of intergenerational conflict. The affluent baby boomers?self-indulgent, easy going, and the beneficiaries of the greatest welfare program in American history?are bankrupting the young, the Millennials. Young and old in America are poles apart and the breadth of today's chasm is unprecedented. By 2030, America's age pyramid?the relationship between the number of working Americans asked to support retirees?will take on a shape it's never been before. Is there a great Battle of the Ages looming on our horizon?o."@en
