Millennials vs Generation Z: WHO IS BETTER?
Millennials Might Be Smarter, Richer And Healthier Than Their Parents – But They Have It Worse
A new report says millennials are doomed...
You might think that young people have it easy. They’re richer than their parents, more intelligent and more likely to live longer than any other generation. They also live in more liberal societies and have access to information faster than any generation before them.
But a special report by the editor ofThe Economist, Robert Guest, suggests that in fact, millennials – which he defines as people aged between 15 and 30 – have it tougher than most people think.
‘In some respects the young have never had it so good,’ Guest writes. ‘They are richer and likely to live longer than any previous generation. On their smartphones they can find all the information in the world. If they are female or gay, in most countries they enjoy freedoms that their predecessors could barely have imagined.
‘They are also brainier than any previous generation. Average scores on intelligence tests have been rising for decades in many countries, thanks to better nutrition and mass education.’
However, the report says, the talent and intelligence of millennials is often wasted, with not enough employment opportunity and the price of housing and education often pricing them out of the market.
Youngsters are twice as likely as their elders to be unemployed, the report says, while over 25% of young people in middle-income nations – and 15% in richer ones – are NEETs (not in education, employment or training).
