16 reasons for pessimism

The future of any country is not only accumulated national wealth, the level of industrial development or mineral reserves. First of all, the prospects of the state are determined by the way it cares for its young citizens. And in this sense, the prospects for the United States look, to say the least, depressing.


Today, most young Americans have lost faith in the future and confidence in the state. They feel like losers, they are no longer warmed by the American Dream. Having safely graduated from college or university, they discover that no one needs them. They are not waiting for prestigious positions and promising jobs. So, young graduates have nowhere to get money, not only, for example, for the purchase of their own housing, but even for the payment of arrears formed during the years of study. As a result, hundreds of thousands of young Americans from student campuses are returning to live with their parents, postponing the decision to start a family for an uncertain future and are interrupted by casual or seasonal earnings just to pay off debts.

A typical example of such a situation is The Wall Street Journal. 26-year-old James Roy over the past six years, constantly changing jobs, has been trying to pay off a loan of $ 14000 for college studies during 2-s. He now works as an administrator in a cafe in the suburbs of Chicago, St. Charles, Illinois.

“Previously, when young people took out a loan for education, they were sure that they would soon pay it back by getting a decent job. However, in the current economic situation, our generation understands that it was simply thrown, ”says James.

Here are the 16 facts describing the situation in which Americans were under the age of 30.

1. The economic activity of Americans between the ages of 18 and 24 years is record low for all the years of such research.

2. Only about a third of Americans 20 years old work full time. The percentage of people in employment from 18 to 29 working full-time (which gives the right to benefits, medical insurance, etc.) continues to fall. In June, 2012, 47% of young people had a full-time contract, and a year later, in June, 2013, only 43,6% remained.

3. In 2007, the unemployment rate in the age group from 20 to 29 years was about 6,5%. Today, for the same age group, it is about 13%.

4. In 2012, the percentage of people under the age of 30 years inclusive in the total number of employees was 23, and their share of the total number of unemployed was 36%.

5. In 2011, 53% of undergraduate Americans with undergraduate degrees were either unemployed or partially unemployed.

6. Today, about half of recent college graduates work in positions that do not require higher education.

7. The number of working Americans between the ages of 16 and 29 in the years between 2000 and 2010 has decreased by 18%.

8. 82% of Americans think that it’s harder for young people to find a job than their parents at the same age.

9. In 2011, the college entrance examination grades were the worst in 40 years.

10. Approximately 2 / 3 all college graduates had to use student loans. At the same time, according to the Federal Reserve System, the total amount of student loan indebtedness from 2003 increased by 275%.

11. The total amount of debt on student loans in the United States currently exceeds the total amount of credit card debt in the country.

12. The US Department of Education reports that payments on 11% student loans are overdue by at least 90 days. At the same time, penalties for late payments on student loans from 2005, almost doubled.

13. Today in the US, more than 100 000 wipers, 317 000 waiters and waitresses have higher education.

14. Only 44,2% of Americans aged 25 to 34 are married, a record low for all history maintaining similar statistics.

15. 57% of Americans aged 18 to 24 years and 29% aged 25 to 34 years still live with their parents. Overall, the number of adult Americans forced to live with their parents is approximately 25 million.

16. Young Americans are mad at the fact that previous generations have left them with more than 17 trillions of dollars of national debt, which they will have to pay and maintain for their entire lives.

      "Young Americans are furious that previous generations have left them more than $ 17 trillion in public debt that they will have to pay and service their entire lives."
      If the dollar continues to be the main world currency, they will not have to pay anything. While everyone is drooling over the bucks, the US national debt will remain just numbers on an electronic scoreboard on Wall Street. The Fed will print as much as needed. "Wedding in Malinovka" -Popandopulo-Take it all, I'll draw it again! "But if there is a REAL alternative to the dollar, as the world's reserve currency, then yes, they may ask for debts. I offer the ruble!

        Whether it's business in Russia!!!!

        Widespread corruption.

        Hazing in the army ("Orthodox" Russians kill / maim Russians).

        Russians are a very "close-knit" nation:
        I served the last six months of military service in Pechenga, - this is practically - a zone for soldiers, immigrants from Dagestan - rule everything. 13 corpses per year. Here is the picture (I’ve been watching the news about this part already years later) - the year 2010, the Russians are waiting in line in the dining room, the Dagestanis are waiting without waiting in line, the Russian soldier, it seems, Artyom, I don’t remember his name already, he makes a remark. In front of the Russians - they kick him to death. This is described in the press in some other colors, but I was there, although at a different time, and I imagine it is absolutely real, this dining room, this line of these soldiers. Russian - more in number, but we are divided into spirits - scoops - grandfathers; Dagestanis only 25%. How many times have I watched scenes there as Russian spirits eat up leftovers of bread for Dagestanis. Grandfather will not sit at the same table with the spirit, as is customary with us.

          Nice, so even sad.
          Thorium energy is a myth, is anything thorium more expensive than uranium? And in terms of distribution in nature, they are the same, but is it easier to extract uranium? In short, do not read any blizzard at night, or look for alternative articles on the topic.

              Thorium reactors do not exist (yet)! Do not read all this nonsense! Attempts have been to establish a process since the 70 years, back in the Soviet Union. And nothing came of it!
              Currently, only incompetent people are talking about thorium energy. These are tales from the same place where helium-3, or California reactors, came from.

              About limited mental abilities, you wrote about yourself, as I understand it. You have not even mastered the comments under the article, not to mention the articles on other resources. As far as I know, in the USSR this topic was abandoned back in the 60s for lack of prospects, in the Federal Republic of Germany it was also abandoned in the 60-70s. And only British scientists are following the old rake, regardless of previous experience in other countries. If you look for the main nuclear fission reaction of thorium, and it is below in the comments of the article you have given, then you will understand that these are "the same eggs, only in profile", because all the charm begins with the fact that you need to get uranium from thorium by irradiation , and then on a knurled pattern with the same consequences.

          In the article, all points, with the possible exception of student loans, can be interpolated to Russia. This is sad for us.
          Now a number of firms are trying to introduce a dynastic approach. Those. for guidance, the employment of children of employees (naturally, with the right specialty) is a priority. This is especially true for technical specialists. And rightly so, we are obliged to help young people. It should be noted that young people today are increasingly going to technical universities. Crazy practice, when everyone was eager for lawyers and economists, seems to be left behind.
          I dare to hope that relations with the West will continue to escalate and that our government will still be forced to industrialize its own country.
          The situation in agriculture is much worse, but if there is a will and understanding that this is by definition a subsidized industry, money will not be allocated by the state not for the construction of APECs, Olympics, World Cups, etc., which are unnecessary for the country, but for housing for young specialists, rural schools, hospitals, kindergartens.
          It is necessary to CATEGORALLY separate the church from the state. It is unacceptable that temples and mosques were built with money from the budget. There is a flock for this. Then the priests on the Lamborghini will not knock people down.
          As for hazing in the army, this is a sore point that can only be solved by a disbat. Moreover, it must be used decisively and after it should only be sent to the construction battalion (which for the sake of this will at least partially be revived). Mountain eagle with a shovel at least learn how to handle. It’s useful in life.
          Standing up with the USA and rejoicing in their problems can and should be because they are enemies, but you cannot let the same problems overwhelm your country.

            My friend served an urgent term in Russia for 2 years. He told me that several people visited his hospital in his platoon, and all these beatings were from their own. There were almost no LCNs in their units.
            Why are Russians beating / maiming their own?

          I’ll explain to you, trollohamster, on my fingers: as soon as double standards are no longer applied to the Russians, the "kaukauztsy" can be entered into the Red Book. That is, it is necessary to exclude the situation when nationalism and non-regulation is sewn to the hare behind a scuffle with a subsequent dispatch to diesel, and the rhino is threatened with a finger. There are plenty of examples. From the latter - Aleysk-2010, where 300 sons of the mountains (battalion), having taken away the whole herd, fell on their phones and the next day MAMA flew to them. These are the guys)))

      In America, the university has long become a commercial enterprise for receiving money, no one is fighting to teach the professions that society now needs, they are all fighting for a university rating and, accordingly, attracting dough in the form of students, and they give loans to all children regardless of who they become.

      Unfortunately, now everything is going the same way, with thousands of non-state universities that produce managers, lawyers and economists. And money is earned not by the cost of education, but by the number of students to the detriment of quality.

      Last year for the first time in all time, the number of places exceeded the number of applicants !!!

    We also have a lot of higher education in the markets. And they paid a lot of money for study. For Americans, this is a shock, but for us, realities. I doubt that the situation in Russia is much better - since there is unemployment (there are more hidden ones), there are closed enterprises, which means there are also unclaimed personnel.

    All that the author described is complete crap. All this including a huge public debt is not scary. The worst thing is that 48 million Americans use the food stamp card (food stamps)! Most of them live off the food stamp at times earning money for cash, i.e. without paying taxes. I do not say of course that all 48 million are completely idlers and parasites, the food stamp really helps someone survive, but if you take the black brotherhood, then for them, life for coupons has long been the goal in life. You don’t need to work, work at times or push poison in the corners, it’s business ... Although the American system is called capitalist, it really has slipped into socialism, humanity for the poor has turned into an army of idlers, whose numbers are growing, the refusal of benefits and coupons will lead to a social explosion in poor neighborhoods, riots and pogroms. In the Roman Empire, too, flirted with poverty, seducing the distribution of bread and providing spectacles of how this ended is known ...

    I personally do not care about Amerokos, but our libers are dragging us along this path. Scary for the young. The aviation industry could receive hundreds of engineers, but Medvedev, Poghosyan, in the best traditions of the traitors of the Fatherland, are doing everything for the final and without rotary destruction of the Russian aircraft industry! I wonder how many rulers fall for such a policy to our rulers or for free .... UNTIL there will be students' own industry waiting too. And neither the guarantor nor the government itches!

    The ball is round, the way it hits them - so it will respond with us. We invite the unemployed after colleges and Harvards to join us in Russia, otherwise Uzbeks and Tajiks do not know Russian well, and we will understand their Amerov dialect if we are ready to "plow" for 10-20 thousand rubles. laughing

    I don't feel sorry for them at all! But our situation is no better. For the loot at the university you can buy what you want. Including a diploma. And then we ask where the bad specialists are from. Because the planes do not fly, and the cars do not drive.

    Quote: Nayhas
    All that the author described is complete crap. All this including a huge public debt is not scary. The worst thing is that 48 million Americans use the food stamp card (food stamps)! Most of them live off the food stamp at times earning money for cash, i.e. without paying taxes. I do not say of course that all 48 million are completely idlers and parasites, the food stamp really helps someone survive, but if you take the black brotherhood, then for them, life for coupons has long been the goal in life. You don’t need to work, work at times or push poison in the corners, it’s business ... Although the American system is called capitalist, it really has slipped into socialism, humanity for the poor has turned into an army of idlers, whose numbers are growing, the refusal of benefits and coupons will lead to a social explosion in poor neighborhoods, riots and pogroms. In the Roman Empire, too, flirted with poverty, seducing the distribution of bread and providing spectacles of how this ended is known ...


    By the way, in Germany the situation is the same! But instead of black Arabs.

    In Russia there are no fewer reasons for pessimism than in the USA, but RUSSIAN AVOS with its OPTIMISM will beat all pessimistic conclusions and reasons. Yes, and the Russian people are not accustomed to being too civilized, for them to go poop for a bush without a piece of paper is already an occasion to burn the national flag. Everything is simpler with us ... So Russia is invincible!

    "Young Americans are furious that previous generations have left them more than $ 17 trillion in public debt that they will have to pay and service their entire lives."

    And who of the American elite is interested. You might think in their policies they take this into account.

    Just take into account. And given this, they continue to support the myth that there is no alternative to the dollar.

    26 years old, I live with my parents. Higher education, secondary technical, now at the second "tower" at the university. The salary is "clean" 18 thousand. I work in the specialty I received at the technical school. Not married, no children. (And to keep them for what?). Of the acquaintances, only one is married. And everyone has no children due to the lack of adequate wages and housing. This also applies to engineers and humanities by education. The hardest thing for representatives of technical specialties. The salary of a young engineer is 16-17 thousand.
    Yes, I do not care about this America, we have a worse situation with young people.
    Bastards, return the USSR !!!

      Now everyone is going to study as accountants and lawyers. Techies are out of fashion now. A lost generation, but managing these is easier.

    Young Americans are infuriated by 17 trillion debt. a young average American knows how to count up to 1000 dollars, so 17 million, billions or trillions .... they are furious ... is it a lot or a little ???? And enough for popcorn? And about the death of America tomorrow ... I’ve been reading since 1971, when I learned to read. Work. true. news, pioneering truth. a light and even a crocodile, everyone wrote about tomorrow's death of America.

    Will America collapse? Well, maybe it will collapse, only we and everyone else will be pulled by ourselves, and rejoice in the collapse of the USA (still as never failed), we must look for ways to free ourselves from our attachment to the USA and the sooner the better ... Although the ways these are known, but our debt ... sorry, the greatest and most honest people in the country's leadership, are in no hurry to begin to lead our homeland along these paths ...

    Yes, everything is the same with us, except for 17 trillion state debt. Universities graduate specialists several times more than required. I read somewhere that is 10 times more in some specialties. In addition, the United States and Russia occupy the first two places in the number of guest workers. This also has similar difficulties.

    About 2/3 of all college graduates had to use student loans. At the same time, according to the Federal Reserve System, the total amount of student loan debt has grown by 2003% since 275.
