Though considered the most educated generation in history, the Millennial generation – young adults between the age of 18 and 29 who make up 25% of America’s population – is also living through one of the worst economic crises.

So writes the EW News Desk Team at www.EconomyWatch.com in edited excerpts from their original article* which Lorimer Wilson, editor of www.munKNEE.com (Your Key to Making Money!), has edited further below for length and clarity – see Editor’s Note at the bottom of the page.

The Team goes on to say, in part:
The newest generation is soon approaching the prime of their lives. Raised as a generation, the Millennials grew with the Internet boom, and they are nothing like their parents. They are social, independent, and entrepreneurial but many of them are still struggling with huge college debts and unemployment, unattuned to the rigors and reality of the current economic climate.
Life depends more on luck than hard work and effort so only time will tell if luck, work ethic or a little bit of both will make the Millennial generation as successful as they hope.
