About the Book:

KIDS THESE DAYS: Human Capital and the Making of Millennials is millennial Malcolm Harris’s groundbreaking investigation into why his generation is poorer, more medicated, and more precariously employed than his parents’ or grandparents’. Through a deeply informed analysis of the major structures and institutions that have influenced the development of young Americans over the past forty years—in parenting, schooling, economics, technology, psychology, sexuality, and more—Harris shows us a generation conditioned from birth to treat their lives and their efforts as human capital to be invested. But what are the consequences of growing up in a world where nearly everything has been reengineered to maximize profit, where the growth of growth requires a person’s abilities, skills, emotions, and even sleep schedule to be in sync with their role in the economy?
