Should the Baby Boomers have constrained their material needs to guarantee Generation Y material comforts and a stress-free life? The ‘jilted generation’ are outraged that they don’t have the privileges of previous generations. They complain they have inherited a world of dwindling resources and debt-driven austerity.

Being young today: very heaven or just plain hell? It’s all on the table in this debate filmed at the Battle of Ideas.
