Generation X grew up in the 1980s, when Alex P. Keaton was going to be a millionaire by the time he was thirty, greed was good, and social activism was deader than disco. Then globalization and the technological revolution came along, changing everything for a generation faced with bridging the analog and digital worlds. Living in a time of “creative destruction” – when an old economic order is upended by a new one – has deeply affected everyday life for this generation; from how they work, where they live, how they play, when they marry and have children to their attitudes about love, humor, happiness, and personal fulfillment. Through a sharp and entertaining mix of pop and alt-culture, personal narrative, and economic analysis, author Lisa Chamberlain shows how Generation X has survived and even thrived in the era of creative destruction, but will now be faced with solving economic and environmental problems on a global scale.

"After spending years in the shadow of Baby Boomers, only now to be left facing the prospect of economic and environmental meltdown, Generation Xers are realizing the time may finally have arrived for them to be in charge. This book makes the case that in a global marketplace in which an ever-widening income gap encourages average Americans to live beyond their means, it may be up to a generation of "slackers" to bring our economy back from the brink."--BOOK JACKET.
