In his "remarkable" (Men's Journal) and "controversial" (Fortune) publication -- written in a "wry, fun type" (The Guardian) -- Bruce Cannon Gibney exhibits how the United States was once hijacked through the Boomers, a iteration whose reckless self-indulgence degraded the rules of yank prosperity.

In A new release of Sociopaths, Gibney examines the disastrous rules of the main strong new release in smooth heritage, exhibiting how the Boomers ruthlessly enriched themselves on the fee of destiny generations.

Acting with no empathy, prudence, or recognize for facts--acting, in different phrases, as sociopaths--the Boomers grew to become American dynamism into stagnation, inequality, and bipartisan fiasco. The Boomers have set a time bomb for the 2030s, whilst harm to Social protection, public funds, and the surroundings turns into catastrophic and doubtless irreversible--and whilst, now not coincidentally, Boomers should be death off.

Gibney argues that more youthful generations have a fleeting window to carry the Boomers in charge and start restoring the US.
