By virtue of their demographic might, the baby boomers rule our country. But has this generation achieved the wealth, health, housing and financial stability at the expense of their children and grand-children? Millennials are constantly told they will be taxed more, work longer hours for less money, have lower social mobility and can forget about house ownership. Join our chair, Catriona Stewart, The Herald and panellists, Dr Jennie Bristow, School of Psychology and Sociology, Canterbury Christ Church University and author of Baby Boomers and Generational Conflict; Torsten Bell, Director, The Resolution Foundation; Keiran O’Neill MSYP; and Jack Dudgeon MSYP, Vice-Chair, Scottish Youth Parliament, to discuss inter-generational fairness.
