Business Report: Some useful information about millennials

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A website called How Much dot net has some pretty good charts measuring stuff you always wondered about. This morning I’ve got a chart about millennials. I’ve complained about surveys purporting to tell us something uniquely millennial, but all they say is stuff that was also true of twentysomethings in the last generation and the one before that. This chart compares millennials to gen-xers like Grace and Steve and babyboomers like me. And - this is important - these numbers are adjusted for inflation. Even when you convert gen-x and babyboom young adult finances to today’s dollars, millennials still face MORE debt and greater difficulty getting into home ownership.
