Here's why Gen Xers - waiting for Boomers to retire - have made the choices they have, and how their creativity can save us from economic ruin.
Generation X grew up in the greed-is-good 1980s, before the Great Middle-Class Squeeze and the roller coaster of economic insecurity and tech revolution began driving Xers' cultural trends, lifestyle choices, and sociological circumstances. And while some foresee a disastrous financial future for all but those at the very top of the pyramid, Slackonomics reveals how a generation forged in such destruction - with the creativity of apathetic slackers, damn-the-torpedoes daytraders, deficit-spending consumers, and permanent freelancers - can bring the economy back from the brink.
One part Freakonomics, one part Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs, Lisa Chamberlain's debut is a must-listen for anyone interested in our nation's future as the Boomers begin handing over the reins to the Xers.
