    A summary of the economic and social problems faced by the Millennial generational cohort, roughly born between 1980 2000 The first two chapters summarize the perfect storm of high expectations and increasing costs endemic to the American high education system Harris deals admirably with increasing tuition costs, the student loan crises, worsened by state governments cutting back funding to
