Much has been written about the plight of the young in America today, many of whom are leaving college and entering a phase of long term underemployment or outright unemployment. The phenomenon of Millennials stuck living in their parents’ basements is a real thing, and it’s troubling. On this week’s edition of Radio Free Acton, Acton Communications Associate Sarah Stanley talks with Jared Meyer of the Manhattan Institute about his new book, Disinherited: How Washington is Betraying Amerca’s Young, which details some of the policy choices and bad economics from the government that underlie the woes of Millennials.
Jared Meyer will also be in town to talk about his book at the next Acton On Tap event – which is totally free, by the way – so be sure to register today ini order to reserve your spot at Jared’s talk!
