Tens of millions of Americans are between the ages of 18 and 30. These Americans, known as millennials, are, or soon will be, entering the workforce. According to Diana Furchtgott-Roth’s new book, Disinherited: How Washington Is Betraying America's Young, it will be more difficult for this millennial generation to achieve success than it was for young people in the past. Ms. Furchtgott-Roth presents the personal stories of several members of what she terms a “disinherited generation,” each story an indictment of America’s treatment of its young. The book declares that the birthright of America’s young must be restored, and endeavors to explain how.
