“Our intent is not to argue that age and generational status are somehow more important that other factors shaping society—our aim is to suggest that we need to pay closer attention to how current employment and housing challenges are impacting different generations since we are living in a context of rapid societal change that makes generational differences more pronounced….And we will need input from all generations if we are to deal with the growing economic uncertainty and inequalities around the globe affecting not just Millennials, but people across all current and future generations."
