They grew up during the longest period of economic growth in American history. When the first Star Wars movie came out the Dow Jones Industrial Average was around 900 points- when the last movie was released it was more than 10,000.

Their parents 401ks got fat and the little houses they had collected Star Wars toys in became worth ten times what mom and dad had paid for them. Now Gen Xers are in their thirties and forties and starting to run for Congress and to run major corporations. As the legions of Baby Boomers retire to live out their eternal hipsterness with megadoses of Viagra and iPods full of classic rock, the Star Wars kids are going to take their turn leading America.

Are they ready? Rob Stam rode the wave of the last two bubbles economies, with luxury houses, cars and toys before he was thirty years old. He lost it all in bankruptcy court and became a cautionary tale of easy times and easy credit.

He learned the hard way that the values and way of life of his grandparents are timeless truths that made America great. In Almost Our Time he argues that Generation X is assuming leadership of a very different country than the one they grew up in. Even so, if the Star Wars generation will learn and apply classic American principles they can defeat the Debt Star and other real world problems and pass on a better nation to their children.
