Poll Vol 3: US Gen Standard of Living

This poll is on which USA generation will have a better standard of living, the Baby Boomers (born 1940-1969) or Generation Y (born 1970-1999). Note, my generational definitions are from Wikipedia. For purposes of this poll, just assume
Boomer = born bt 1940-1969
Gen Y = born bt 1970-1999

There have been many Americans, from Paul Craig Roberts to Blue Scholars, who have stated this will be the 1st generation in American history, where the standard of living declines from that of its parents.

I have strong views on this, so I will not highlight pros & cons of each argument. Plus this is a topic that everyone in the general public should be able to have their own informed opinion on, without reading more background material.

Pls rock the vote.

Vote deadline is Mon Jul-2.

elgringocolombiano.... I voted, and so far it's 100% for Baby Boomers. I think most people don't believe after The Decider gets through with the country that things will ever be better, we'll be lucky to avoid third world status!

Two points of order here:
1. Baby Boomers are sometimes more narrowly defined as people born between 1946 and 1964.

2. Gen Y more commonly refers to people born in the latter part of the 1970s (especially folks born beginning in 1977). By including those born from 1970 on, you may be actually including a bunch of Gen X'ers. Careful with how you poll!
