Most Britons believe children will have worse lives than their parents – poll

  • Current generation of children will have a lower standard of living than their parents, as concern about the economic crisis hardens into long-term pessimism, a new poll shows.
  • Some 64% of those questioned believed it was unlikely that today’s youth would have a better life than their parents, while just 32% thought it was likely. When asked whether their children would have a higher or lower quality of life when they reached their age, just 23% said they believed it would be higher, while 35% said it would be lower, with 32% saying it would be about the same.

“The central economic issue is how to stimulate productive investment when public finances are constrained. I focus on three economic priorities. The need for financial reform, for example through a British Investment Bank. The need to promote better workplaces that engage employees… And the need to use public sector power… as a coherent driver of the private sector investment equation.”

David Miliband
