The Ghost of Al Amode

Nowadays, you know when you're talking to a member of Tom Brokaw's "Greatest Generation." Their humor is easier to come by and seem to be personally defined by some kind of thrifty tic, which is something of a great thing in itself.


Around a year ago —election time— such a heavy emphasis was put on us Millennials, Generation Y, particularly how we were going to clean this world up. I remember an article discussing Generation Z, the Internet Generation. The article's main point was how interesting they're going to turn out, having always had the World Wide Web, raised in an ugly recession. It was titled "The Generation of Thrift."

In late 2007/early 2008, our housing bubble bursted causing the rest of the global good times bubble to burst with it. It would've been catastrophic, apocalyptic if it had been when my grandparents were children.

But the difference: a decade-long depression versus a two-year recession. Let's face it, we're getting better at this economic crisis thing.

I wonder how many Gen Zers will fill a bowl with six or seven potato chips and be content because that is what the serving size is or save everything from quarters to trinkets. I suppose it won't matter; I probably won't be around to see it.
