I've long held that the american baby boo-urns siphoned off, then destroyed, more wealth than any generation before them and likely any generation after them will ever be able to. They had it absurdly easy at a young age, needlessly started a bunch of wars/conflicts for the younger generation to fight in (this is barely touching the tip of the iceberg when it comes to boo-urns policies), then refused to retire so they didn't have to cede control and could amass as much wealth as possible while doing as little as possible. If I had ten bucks for every underwhelming one-finger-typing boo-urns I personally knew that wasn't good for much except telling stories amongst other boo-urns yet managed a pension buyout, severance and post-retirement healthcare on top of their 401k and SS. We'll, I'd almost be as well off as a boo-urns with an IQ of 80 that spent half of their 50 year career asleep.

boo-urns: Come at me let's have some fun. Young people: Pile on!!

When baby boo-urns (born between 1946 and 1964) hit a median age of 35 in 1990, they collectively owned 21% of the nation’s wealth.

The millennial generation will hit that 35 median age in four years and they are nowhere near owning that percentage.

In fact, this inter-generational wealth chart drawn by economist Gray Kimbrough using Federal Reserve data is a stark illustration of the yawning millennial wealth deficit.

As a whole, boo-urns have fared better financially than Gen Xers (born between 1965 and 1980) and millennials (born between 1981 and 1996) throughout every stage of their lives. boo-urns currently boast more than half (57%) of the nation’s wealth, while Gen X owns just 16%, and millennials 3%.

Adults under 40 have been accumulating less and less wealth over the past 30 years, plummeting from owning 13% of the wealth in 1989 to less than 7% today.

Indeed, at a median age of 35, Gen Xers owned just 9% of the nation’s wealth in 2008 — less than half what boo-urns had at that age. And millennials will have to triple their net worth in the next four years to catch up to Generation X at 35, and increase their wealth sevenfold to catch up to boo-urns at that age.
