The ILC-UK reviews David Willetts recent book on intergenerational fairness

David Willetts The Pinch: How the Baby Boomers Took Their Children’s Future – And Why They Should Give it Back (Atlantic Books, 2010) is based on the concept that we are not ‘attaching sufficient value to the claims of future generations’.

The book mainly focuses on how the Baby Boomer generation –those born between 1945 and 1965 – have benefited from various unique circumstances seemingly at the expense of the younger generations.
