This recent piece by Ayobami Olugbemiga has much to recommend it, but the most striking thing about it may be this: Mr. Olugbemiga manages to discuss the retirement crisis faced by Millennials for seven paragraphs without once blaming older generations for their woes. The author’s photograph suggests he’s too young to be a Boomer. He nevertheless manages to observe that older Americans are also facing a retirement crisis, and cites an AP story which notes that this is a global phenomenon.
That’s a refreshing break from the onslaught of stories which try to pit one generation against another on this issue.
