    Right now mass immigration from third world countries and printing money is the bandaid on the issue. Full economic reset is needed.

    27 years old, i live with them because they are old and they need help, which prompt me to sacrifice my dreams to help my family out.

  3. Danny M on August 7, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    What’s the point of moving out if you are single. I couldn’t think of anything worse than living on my own.

  4. Ciro Amaya on August 7, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    Sometimes parents need the help, sometimes the kids need help. Either way we need to get paid more.

  5. xguy9 on August 7, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    I love my parents, but I want to be a king of my own little castle.

  6. Tuna box on August 7, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    Thanks boomers for ruining the economy for young people.

  7. Monni Khan on August 7, 2021 at 9:48 pm

  8. codebrker24 on August 7, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    He didn’t address before 2010.

  9. Clown Driver on August 7, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    This video is aweful, full of lies, and misleading.

  10. olesammie on August 7, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    This expert ( using that term loosely) is pushing a right wing agenda. He is blaming the Affordable Care Act when it is actually wealthy corporations who won’t pay decent wages. Plus, the cost of housing is prohibitive, which actually has its roots in the sub prime mortgage crisis! YET again, greed of large corporations. People living longer with their parents is a trend across Europe too. The same exploitation taking place. Frankly, he’s not even good at sounding like he knows what he’s talking about, his intention is so obvious. Not subtle!

  11. Carter on August 7, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Immigration doesn’t help either

  12. Bus Town BC on August 7, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Why is he saying white men??? Why not all men?? Wtf

  13. Riding TheCloud on August 7, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    Right let’s have old men talk about young peoples problems.

  14. Anti Masonic on August 7, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    This guy blamed the Affordable Care Act for the reason why young people still live at home. Look, the real reason why young people still live with their parents is because wages are low and the cost of living is too high. People cannot afford $2,000, $3,000, or more in rent per month.

  15. KiLLED5639 on August 7, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    I think sending every 17-18 y/o to college to go into debt is what’s causing this trend of living at home. A lot of young people haven’t had good, stable income in their lives yet and we’re telling them to go 10s of thousands of dollars in debt before they’ve even had their first job. If we want young adults to be independent earlier, we have to show them how to get jobs without having a college degree. This is not to say we should discourage people from going to college but to inform people on their options. Let people go to college when they can pay for it.

  16. Bus Town BC on August 7, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    Are they f ing stupid?!?!? Most cant afford a place even with a job because they get paid so little..they cant even afford food

  17. Toggle Doggle on August 7, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    What I thought if your a white man rainbow appear leading you to 6 figure jobs ???

  18. Audrina Jay on August 7, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    Been living with roommates since 18 and in my own place since 24 I’m 33 now living in NYC suburb.

  19. Sweet Pea28 on August 7, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    I graduated from high School 1965, I remember many parents expected, some parents said leave home get your own place make it on your own (legal adult hood age 22). I stayed home walked to the university. Then moved away. If I had moved back home at any time I would have lived in my parents rules and helped in the house as I always did. My parents always let it be known it was their house and their rules. I could not have brought in a pet not even for 2 months when I moved back and was looking for an apartment. Now I am old bought my own house. If I must will bring my 100 year old mother with dementia. But I think a assisted living better fit for her and better activities than in a private house.

  20. Sharon Crawford on August 7, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    My dad always said, you make your bed and you will ly in it. Boy, he wasnt kidding. But I learned from it. Because now I have a 40 yr old daughter. If she ever needed my help, and I could help her I did. I know children have to learn responsibility. But my dad was just wrong. I could never treat my only daughter like that. My dad was raised that way. He followed the pattern. Thank God it stopped with me.

  21. The Nonconformist on August 7, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    Believe it or not, children living with their parents AND working are financially smart. Children living with their parents and not working are living the chill life, and children living with their parents and taking care of them until they die are honorable!

  22. Sharon Crawford on August 7, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    Im 64. At 18, I was expected to get a full time job. I also paid rent to stay at my parents home, or move out. I did move out 2 times. Then I got married. Had a baby. Got divorced. Wasnt allowed to come home, so was on my own at 23 with a little baby. A little over 2 yrs later I remarried my husband. Thank God It worked the second time. I had no financial help from my parents once I was 18. Never had any financial help up to this point.

  23. klppdc on August 7, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    America needs to reduce defense budget. And provide universal healthcare to all and also UBI. America is going to have very hard days if government doesn’t take care of American citizens.

  24. ANDYDAVIRGO on August 7, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    I’m 34 living with my folks and don’t mind. I pay bills like everyone else. No shame. Paid off debt and saving for a house.

  25. martysk8r on August 7, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    From my experience, a man should have at least $3M+ to get married. Women don’t want a man with a job. She wants lots of time (no job), lots of money, and the ability to fly around the world on a permanent vacation (and a big house, new cars, swimming pool, etc.).

  26. Henry Burby on August 7, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    corporations will always have their losses covered. These tools are saying “we cannot afford to bail out the corps and the people, so we should just bail out the corps. After all, the affordable care act is the reason young people are too lazy to get jobs.” This is austerity propaganda, don’t trust anything these people say.

  27. Good Living on August 7, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    He is most truthful economost Ive heard on mainstream media

  28. Striker 50 on August 7, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    Good points.
    However, I call BS on V-shaped economy. Far from the truth

  29. K-GUY 123 on August 7, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    Why is this happening? Because cost of everything is going up and there are few good paying jobs?! The government only cares about the rich! I can go on.

  30. anonymous on August 7, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    Don’t blame them. Too expensive to survive. Nice to know parents welcome their adult children to live with them

  31. Real Devil on August 7, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    Who is complaining? Parents? Don’t give birth!!!

  32. Henry Burby on August 7, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    This is the stupidest explanation. They blame the affordable care act.

  33. Henry Burby on August 7, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    The economy is just an indicator of rich people’s feelings. It has nothing to do with us.

  34. Zed Love on August 7, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    TURN ON, TUNE IN, DROP OUT. We do not have to play their game, we do not have to relate with status symbols, we will not conform, we will unite.

  35. KiLLED5639 on August 7, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    Why did he have to mention the white men part when he asked why people are living with their parents?

  36. MR COLOSSUS on August 7, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    Not gonna, lie i wouldnt mind being a hitman if i had no other choice,I definitely wouldn’t mind doing it if I knew I was going to get away with it(knowing as in the future sense)

  37. Ramon Casanova on August 7, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    White man bull I’m Mexican most of us still in moms house

  38. FordFalcon1962nBlue on August 7, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    it was 1 in 3, now its half..pretty soon almost everyone will- when will the boomers admit their nation is falling apart and that trump was never going to fix it

  39. Austin Christian on August 7, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    Minimum wage should’ve never fell below the cost of living. That was the first issue. Now they are trying to increase way to quickly which will cause another. Need jerk reactions to increase taxes, and prices on everything else will cause a deficit that will cause a reverse reaction to the benefit.

  40. you tube member Gonzalez on August 7, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    MexicanAmericancoolguy: The American people need a $900 extra monthly to pay things and live on there personal life style, That money will go right back to the white house, after buying merchandise from there local store’s! Later have good day

  41. Henry Burby on August 7, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    CBN is a far right fundamentalist christian network. Just so everyone knows.

  42. Ellie Mandy on August 7, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    We have a system that failed us from the very beginning.

  43. DontGetSprint!02 on August 7, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    Corporations get all the benefits and the common working class get nothing. We are slaves regardless if we are educated or not. We are salves to the economy that make rich people richer.

  44. K C on August 7, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    I don’t understand the logic. Old parents need more their young children staying with them, because of health reasons. What’s the problem in it then? Should children leave their old parents in the time of their( old parents) need?

  45. Mark Valencia on August 7, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    Maybe rent should be cheaper they should give everyone that live in a apartment should not get income tax simple cause this reason alone

  46. DeanRendar84 on August 7, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    Isnt this religious channel in support of acts of kindness and compassion to those in need , seems hypocritical that assuming the stimulus is "enough" for everyone that it should stop, there are people now set back from their financial situation because the household source of income got ill and now have no way to continue their plans until they stabilize a new method to navigate to their goal, and the stimulus checks offset the reasons to have your attention divert to their pressing goals/obligations from, freeing them for more energy to regain footing, dust off, and try right again when they are anticipating continuing as soon as they have charted their route free from a money panic for hort term essentials/repairs/services instead of their furthering independence.

  47. Diamond in the Sky on August 7, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    Because the world doesn’t work like the Sims where you can just instantly get a job, and a well paying one at that, simply by applying and getting instantly hired.

  48. trueblue37 on August 7, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    Because. Its ridiculously expensive to live alone now.

  49. John Han on August 7, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    Stop going to inflated college with useless degree. You end up with student loan which you can’t declare bankruptcy on them. Instead, going to trade school and learning technical skills!!! These “blue collar” jobs easily pay you two times over minimum wage, and it will increase with time and experience!

  50. Franklin Sami on August 7, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    I’m 31 and in this situation.. started my life over and going to school.. I’m just afraid of dating in this situation
