Does Gen Z have a future?

In this discussion hosted by Susan Kokinda with guest Brian Lantz, the conversation revolves around the implications of Donald Trump's Agenda 47 policies if he becomes the 47th president, in contrast to the Heritage Foundation's proposals. Kokinda and Lantz explore how Trump's policies and national mission, particularly his focus on space exploration and energy innovation, offer a sense of optimism and a promising future for Generation Z, who currently face a pessimistic outlook under prevailing policies. They criticize the Heritage Foundation's report for lacking a vision for a national mission and promoting a gig economy, which they argue would not support a stable or prosperous future for the younger generation. The discussion highlights the importance of creating a future that includes high-paying, skilled jobs and addresses the housing market issues that concern younger Americans, emphasizing that Trump’s agenda, unlike the Heritage Foundation’s, aligns with the broader American vision of progression and innovation.
