Leisureville has been released in Australia and New Zealand. Here's a really thoughtful op-ed in a leading newspaper that discusses the book and its ramifications.
"A community that refuses to invest in the future sends a message that there is no value in giving back to society unless one directly reaps the rewards. Not only is this selfish, but it is self-destructive. A successful society demands co-operation. It demands that the rewards reaped from the work of past generations are repaid by investing in future generations. Turning your back on young people contributes to the very fragmentation of social values about which you complain."
