From The Clash of Generations by Thomas L. Friedman, New York Times, 16 July 2011:

Indeed, if there is one sentiment that unites the crises in Europe and America it is a powerful sense of “baby boomers behaving badly” — a powerful sense that the generation that came of age in the last 50 years, my generation, will be remembered most for the incredible bounty and freedom it received from its parents and the incredible debt burden and constraints it left on its kids.

Could hardly say it better myself, Mr Friedman.
