Millennials born in the 1980s may never recover from the Great Recession
- What's worse, the typical 1980s family lost ground between 2010 and 2016, after the recession ended.
- Those born in the 1980s were not the only group to fare worse than expected.
- Americans born in the 1960s and 1970s accumulated 11% and 18% less wealth respectively in 2016 than predicted.
- Meanwhile, older generations were worth somewhat more than expected, with those born in the 1930s doing the best at 17% above the predicted value.
- In fact, those born after 1960 are earning roughly what was expected.
- Families headed by someone born in the 1960s and 1970s were more likely to own homes than expected prior to the Great Recession.
- The 1980s kids, however, were generally too young to own homes prior to the Great Recession.
- Unlike mortgages, these do not finance an appreciating asset, such as real estate, which is one reason these families failed to boost their wealth in the last few years.
