The Brokest Generation

Demography czar Mark Steyn looks at the transfer of wealth from the young to the geezers. Thanks kids.
God bless the youth of America! We of the Greatest Generation, the Boomers, and Generation X salute you, the plucky members of the Brokest Generation, the Gloomers, and Generation Y, as in “Why the hell did you old coots do this to us?”

Interesting blog and post, but it’s missing an important part of the equation: Generation Jones, born 1954-1965, between the Boomers and Generation X. Google Generation Jones, and you’ll see it’s gotten a ton of media attention, and many top commentators from many top publications and networks (Washington Post, Time magazine, NBC, Newsweek, ABC, etc.) now specifically use this term. GenJones is particularly relevant here, given the fact that the vast majority of GenYers are the offspring of GenJones. Generation experts underline the importance of parental influences in the formation of collective generational personalities.

@hetyd4580 - that might be true if Generation Jones Existed...
