I repeated the Intergenerational Transfers presentation to Jill Reglin’s writing classes today. It’s especially timely given the efforts by some well-heeled Wall St types and some “journalists” to convince college-age students that somehow older Americans can only benefit if younger people lose – a pit-the-generations-against-each-other concept. But that’s not really how it works.
