Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Any time I see an article saying "xxx is the worst it's been in U.S. history," I wonder how well they verified their history.

Young people living at home is not new, it's the conventional way of doing things. What's "different" is that last few decades where it went the other way and people kicked out their kids when they hit eighteen.

Youth unemployment isn't new, either. Or changes in technology driving changes in business models.

I'm not arguing your observations, I'm expressing frustration about ignoring how lousy things were back in the good old days and how people should not look at the past through rose-colored glasses.
