This debate took place at the Royal Geographical Society on 27th October 2011.

Event info:

Hey old man! You owe me. You got a free university education and then you grabbed all the houses and pulled up the ladder. You're sitting on the best jobs and all we young people can do is beg for an unpaid internship and worry about how we're going to pay off our debts. As you get older you're going to cream off the resources of the welfare state which is obliged to take care of you, and we're going to have to pay for it one way or another.

Hang on a minute, kid! We're the generation that built this wealthy society and we worked hard for everything we have. Why are you so set on grabbing what's ours when you could be using your youth and energy to create wealth for yourselves? We forked out for your school fees, your computers and your holidays abroad. Yes, things are tough at the moment but we're using all our connections to get you work experience with our friends' companies and you've still no plans to leave home. Is there no end to your complaints?

Who's right, who's wrong? Come to the debate, hear the arguments and decide for yourself.
