Millennials have fewer attachments to traditional political and religious institutions than previous generations. They are also facing greater financial challenges, yet they are more optimistic about the future. Those are among the findings of a recent Pew Research Center survey of adults ages 18-33. We'll talk about the survey, the growing generation gap between Millennials and Baby Boomers, and other demographic trends with Pew's Paul Taylor, author of the new book "The Next America: Boomers, Millennials and the Looming Generational Showdown."

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Paul Taylor, executive vice president of the Pew Research Center and author of "The Next America: Boomers, Millennials and the Looming Generational Showdown"
