Summary For the first time in its recent history, America faces the prospect of intergenerational conflict. The affluent baby boomers?self-indulgent, easy going, and the beneficiaries of the greatest welfare program in American history?are bankrupting the young, the Millennials. Young and old in America are poles apart and the breadth of today's chasm is unprecedented. By 2030, America's age pyramid?the relationship between the number of working Americans asked to support retirees?will take on a shape it's never been before. Is there a great Battle of the Ages looming on our horizon?o.
