The financial crisis of 2008-2009 affects many millennials as they bear the primary costs of college tuition, residential demand, health care, and childcare. Ages 22 to 39, millennials have less purchasing power than previous generations did at the same age. Although millennials have benefited from a 67% increase in real wages since the 1970s, this wage boost is insufficient for millennials to keep up with CPI price inflation over the past 4 decades. More than half of millennials cannot afford to own residential properties, have less than $5,000 in their bank deposit accounts, and maintain no retirement accounts. Nowadays millennial affordability attracts both public and private solutions.

For instance, Senator Elizabeth Warren proposes that the government forgives $50,000 in student loan debt for each American whose family earns up to $100,000. Also, Former Vice President Joe Biden supports the new proposal that it should be free for students to complete 4-year bachelor degrees at public universities and colleges. Moreover, the venture fund Kairos invests in more than 5 companies with $20 million to design solutions that tackle the inflationary costs of student loan debt, residential demand, childcare, health insurance, and so forth. Overall, millennial affordability has hence become a major socioeconomic issue in America.
