I'm afraid that my generation will be called the "Selfish" Generation. We are putting about $1,200,000,000,000 of debt on our kids & grandkids & great-grandkids. We don't want to face the bad times for a period. The spending that will be done will cause immense inflation & who is going to buy the debt; I've read that the Chinese are planning to spend their money in country rather in US Bonds.
SELFISH, (adj) Devoid of consideration for the selfishness of others. (DD)
