I understand the idea of "millennial's" being adverse to owning cars, but that guy was clearly a poor representation of a generation. My older brother doesn't have a license and it boggles me why. Many of my younger coworkers don't even own cheap used cars. It used to be and still is somewhat that you got your permit as early as possible, and drove a beater to highschool or whatever your parents handed you. Among my younger brothers crowd (who also doesn't have a license) it seems 1 in 4 of his friends has a car, and social events gravitate around that one car.

My take is that the economy has been tough on this recent generation. Recession, high debt, worthless college degrees, jobs that would rather have experienced older workers. Has this been the case in previous decades?
