Sponging Boomers

The website Things Boomers Like has a great discussion of an article in The Economist called Sponging Boomers.

The bone-dry weekly news magazine The Economist -  mostly read by rich, old guys or sickly patients in doctors' waiting rooms - is not the first place you'd expect to find an article decrying the adverse economic affects of baby-boomer sponging and rent-seeking. 
But in wielding its neo-liberal blowtorch without fear or favour,  the Economist has shown that it's not afraid to speak truth to Boomer power, even when that's essentially its own readership.
