Given the current economic outlook, I believe that I will be less wealthy than my parents. Both of my parents had opportunities during the 80s and 90s that I truly can't even dream of. They were both able to attain management positions in different companies, bought a very nice house on a big piece of land, always had two nice cars, put their kids through college, etc.
I'm happy with my life, but I don't think I'll ever be able to accomplish the things that they did, the money just isn't there and short of magically getting a job over some elite Harvard guy it never will be. This is despite the fact that I'm just as educated as my parents are. I would say that the outlook for middle-class people like me is fairly grim.
