Jilted Generation : How Britain Has Bankrupted Its Youth Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

'Should be read as a strident call to arms for a partially disenfranchised generation that is burdened with debt.'The Times'No parent can dismiss this argument about our collective failure to invest in the future' The GuardianWhy are so many adult children living still living with mum and dad?

Why do young people seem so disinterested in politics? And what are the hidden threats to Britain's long-term prosperity lurking in the next few decades?First published in 2010, Ed Howker and Shiv Mailk's Jilted Generation answers fundamental questions about the society you thought you knew.

It identified, for the first time, the perilous position of Britain's young adults and, with a title brandished by everyone from Ed Miliband to student protesters, the book's thesis has formed a controversial but essential part of Britain's political debate. With significant additional material, this edition updates the argument and explains the real effects of austerity policies and the recession. And, crucially, it explains what must be done to protect a vital and underestimated national asset - Britain's newest adults.
