Lisa Chamberlain suggests in the NYObserver that we Gen-Xers are in an unprecedented quagmire: tons of debt, volatile job market, staring down high costs of caring for our aging parents, putting off having children for lack of financial stability, buying consumables instead of investing in retirement, etc etc.
