Entitled brats? It's not millennials who destroyed the world economy
Young people today are derided by older generations as being entitled brats, but the truth is that it is the middle-aged and pensioners who are spoiled rotten in our society.

Measuring quality of life using 11 separate indicators - including income poverty, housing quality problems, inability to afford basic goods - it found those aged between 18 and 30 are nearly twice as likely than those aged over 65 to experience multiple problems.
