In this interesting podcast ("IdeaCast") from Harvard Business Review Publishing on Generation X the author explains how my generation is squeezed between baby-boomers and GenY/Netgen.
Although I agree with most of what is said I think the author forgot one important detail.
Indeed, my generation grew up with the end of the economic boom in the western world and the first oil crisis, the rise of unemployment and Aids and for some of us tough job market as we were getting out of college. However, many still made it and thrived so maybe this gave us a little edge when it comes to resilience don’t you think?
Anyway, I’ll advise you to subscribe to the IdeaCast podcast, they often cover interesting topics.
