Economy Books for the Layman
Strapped: Why America’s 20- and 30-Somethings Can’t Get Ahead
by Tamara Draut
This is a great book for anybody who is 20 to 30 years old, or who has children and wants to understand how and why it is that the financial deck is stacked so steeply against society’s newest adults. In a nutshell, boomers have written a set of laws that assure all of the current economic surplus flows to them, leaving very little for the next generation.
