Generation Y faces the bleakest economic
landscape in modern history. The recent spikes in unemployment and debt,
alongside a drop in marriage, home-buying, and childbearing rates, will have
long-term consequences for a group that had no hand in creating the financial
crisis. For these young adults, the American Dream is moving farther out of
reach. Worse still, leaders aren’t doing anything about it. Drawing on a wide
range of reportage and interviews from across the United States, Europe, Asia,
and Latin America, Riva Froymovich gives voice to those struggling in this new economy
and explains the harm of shortsighted government policies, including
initiatives to curb the national debt and key social programs.
Through policy suggestions that focus on
social enterprise and investment in economic growth, as well as inspiring stories
from young entrepreneurs carving out their own way, End of the Good Life
presents a deeply relevant read for Millennials, their baby boomer parents, and
anyone who cares about the survival of this nation’s most important tenet: the
opportunity to get ahead.
