High Hopes in a Grim World. Emerging Adults' Views of Their Futures and "Generation X."
Arnett, Jeffrey Jensen
Youth & Society, v31 n3 p267-86 Mar 2000
Explores views of the future among young adults age 21-28 years, focusing on quality of life, financial well-being, career achievements, and personal relationships. Data from interviews and questionnaires show a sharp distinction between how respondents view their personal futures (with high hopes) and how they view their generation's perspective on the future (the Generation X cynicism and pessimism).
