"Baby boomers are now famous for being blasé about messing up the world for future generations, sucking up all the money because of macro-economic trends, rather than any efforts they put in and ruining the environment. "

Maybe it depends on which country you were born into. Boomers in the UK were born into the aftermath of rationing and brought up by parents who lived through the "make do and mend" era of WW2. We were taught to look after stuff so it would last longer, repair it when it broke and not to waste anything.
