Many boomers, who range in age from roughly 47 to 65, simply believe that after years of hard work they can spend their money as they choose, experts say.
They spent their lives building businesses and careers, often at the expense of their health or personal relationships. And after years of footing the bill for their kids' pricey educations, they see no reason to curb their spending impulses in their later years. - LAT
The usual media tip-toeing around paying customers who might be offended; say it straight: Baby Boomers are the most selfish generation ever produced.
They think of their own needs first, always. They only had kids to brag about, like getting a new car. Their focus is entirely on the fascinating world of themselves.
Of course, millennials may have one-upped them there, but from a different idea. They're so alienated and ineffectual they are unaware of anything but themselves and their immediate social drama.
But Baby Boomers don't seem happy. In fact, they're still grindingly agitating, after all these years.
