Very interesting discussion on how various age groups look at the COVID-19 situation. Certainly reflects my impressions of the posts on TUG as well as my personal experiences in “real life”. I don’t think it’s behind the paywall but here’s a couple of interesting items

Per cent of age groups feeing more lonely
19-34. 33%
55 and older 18%

Per cent feeling highly distressed
19-29 33%
65 and older 15%


Cheers

Millennial's are suffering the most - starting in the job market around 2000, then the 2008 recession and now the pandemic

The statistics show very clearly that Millennials and GenX are way behind prior generations in wealth accumulation (e.g. net worth at age 35, net worth at age 40, level of retirement savings, availability of real pensions, etc.). Yes, they have time, but there is no sign the economy is going to boom to the extent necessary for them to ever catch up.

As a 71 y/o, I have no problem with the quarantine. But, as summer comes, that attitude will probably change. I don't envy my 38 y/o daughter and SIL. They have a 6 and 2 y/o at home and the 2 y/o is a hellion. There is just no rest.

The one great outs for our generation is the existence of technology. I remember 3 channels and b/w TV. Now I can watch videos on Youtube, peruse finances on the web, and pop on sites like Tug. We have been watching recorded shows on cable: Young Sheldon, Mom and Last Man Standing. Sure beats the crossword puzzles in the printed newspaper - delivered by the 12 year old paperboy (like me) :)

I am 54 but I think I speak Eightyish. I could most relate to the mindset the author described for people in the Eighties. Specifically, as being “someone who is accepting of the perceived risk because it’s now or never to complete one’s most important life tasks and goals.” I feel that way for myself and others. Even though I probably have another 30+ years of life if I do not get a deadly illness, I have always had a sense of urgency about living and have been aware life can be taken away at any moment. This sense of urgency accelerated for me when I turned 50.
