Millennials (born 1980-1994) often accuse Baby Boomers (born 1946-1964) of ruining the world, and vice versa. Boomers have saddled younger generations with huge debts they cannot repay, while Millennials are derided as "snowflakes" who expect the world to take care of them. Demographic philosopher Glenn Campbell explores the statistical reasons for this conflict. With their sheer numbers, Boomers powered the biggest economic expansion in the history of the world. As they move into retirement, this engine will sputter, leaving the Millennials in a deflating growth bubble. (Skippable—covered better in Ep. 16)
