Millennials in debt: A generation unfairly disadvantaged?

Research suggests there is an emerging wealth gap for millennials. Historically, every generation has enjoyed higher living standards than the one before. But if economic trends continue, people in their 20s and early 30s will be worse off than their baby boomer parents. Millennials are disproportionately burdened by student debt and often can’t afford to buy a home. Are the long-term economic impacts of this intergenerational divide being ignored? Joining us at the Roundtable is Vicky Pryce, Chief Economic Adviser to the Centre for Economics and Business Research; Madeline Grant is from the Institute of Economic Affairs; Entrepreneur Aamar Aslam is the CEO at Funding Invoice; and Ali Milani is the National Union of Students Vice President. Roundtable is a discussion programme with an edge. Broadcast out of London and presented by David Foster, it's about bringing people to the table, listening to every opinion, and analysing every point of view. From fierce debate to reflective thinking, Roundtable discussions offer a different perspective on the issues that matter to you. Watch it every weekday at 15:30 GMT on TRT World.
