    For all those people who find it more convenient to bother you with their question rather than search it for themselves.

    guess we should be honoured at the attempt to enlighten

    fyi

    Generations are pretty bogus. The labels we use to casually slice up society — boomer, millennial, Gen X, Gen Z — are a nearly useless way of thinking about politics, culture or business in America. The very idea that tens of millions of people across different classes and races and geographies might hold similar views on a range of subjects just because they happened to be born during the same 20-year span of American history — the whole thing sounds a bit too much like astrology, doesn’t it?

    but good luck with the minimalist nihilism

    any programmer will tell you

    crap in = crap out

    ...

    spending less than your earn

    has ALWAYS led to more options

    at least the important ones

    It's another example of the group of people complaining about house prices are also loading up on $10 beers and $1000 cell phones.

    It's interesting that you know how old I am from my post... that being said I'm pretty sure I can tell your age by yours.

    For the record I'm not a boomer... not even close. What I am is someone who has watched my friends and family increase their expectations of what they SHOULD have in life and regularly whittle away their hard earned.

    I've worked in offices with folks who earn multiples of the average salary then sit at the most exclusive (read expensive) restaurants in town hearing them complain about how they can't seem to save any money.

    BMT - call it what you want but there are a few truths in life:

    1 - The mathematics don't lie. Spend less that you earn the delta will be savings

    2 - You don't deserve anything - it doesn't matter what your parents told you you're not that special

    3 - You can only spend money once

    4 - It's a competitive world - if someone else wants it more than you they'll probably get it (i.e. work harder, pay more)

    Maybe they were thinking the same about you - but you have a house, maybe they do too?
    What a load of tosh!

    Is this because property is the only game in town?
    Raise the interest rates - suck lots of money in from around the world because there is lots looking for a return - push up the exchange rate - reduce our export competativeness and see how the country as a whole goes.

    It's pretty much the same logic as 'put a CGT on property to bring prices down' !!

    Nah... based on the data they can't all own houses... but you know that... right?

    unless by some statistical anomaly only home owners were among the hundreds strong crowd.
