Millennials complain that the job market has never fully worked for them, that they are crushed by student debt, and that paying for their parents’ old-age entitlement benefits will bankrupt them. But are these complaints justified? Joseph C. Sternberg weighs in this debate in his new book on millennials in the post-2008 economy — and finds that baby boomers have mortgaged their children’s future to pay for their own economic comforts.
Please join AEI for a discussion with Mr. Sternberg and an expert panel on his new book, “The Theft of a Decade: How the Baby Boomers Stole the Millennials’ Economic Future” (Public Affairs, 2019).
