WHAT: Intergenerational Fairness: Will Our Kids Live Better than We Do

DESCRIPTION: Today’s youngest and future generations face very high net fiscal burdens: higher than those of any other generations, especially those born from the mid-1950s to the 1990s. Generally speaking, babyboomers and their children fare well in this scenario, but the grandkids of babyboomers do not. This presentation highlights the role of government policies and demographics.
