An Intergenerational Audit for the UK: 2019
Intergenerational issues are on the political, policy and research agenda in Britain in 2019, and their salience is rising. The Intergenerational Commission, hosted by the Resolution Foundation during 2016-18, was one element of a growing focus on the experiences of different cohorts compared to predecessors at the same age.
While large majorities across age groups in Britain believe that each successive generation should have a better life than the one before, pessimists about the prospects of today’s younger generation outnumber optimists by two-to-one. A body of analysis showed that in a range of areas related to economic living standards, this pessimism is at least partly justified.
