"I think it's summed up nicely by 'reddit'. We are taught at school what's inside the cell of a plant but not how mortgages or credit cards work. Personally what I find most worrying is the lack of propensity to risk. Very smart millenials are happy to stay in a low paid job with a big firm rather than branch out by themselves. The entrepreneurial spirit is being lost." "
