Sorry folks. It was my generation that screwed the pooch.
My parents’ generation (AKA "The Greatest Generation") built the longest sustained economic boom in US history. Coincidentally it coincided with the lowest income disparities and the largest union membership rates in US history.
My generation has been greedy, corrupt or just asleep at the wheel. We destroyed what our parents built for us.
Interestingly, my grand parents’ generation did the same things as my generation: greed, corruption, laissez faire economic policies and austerity measures. They plunged us into the Great Depression. Maybe good sense skips a generation.
I am ready to do what I can to rebuild it and provide the next generation with the same opportunities I had. I just do not know where to start…
