I have my housing. You don't? Your problem.

A new article in Slate poses that the housing problem in the Bay Area and throughout the state is a generational issue.

The argument goes like this: The older Baby Boomer generation benefited from lower tuition and lower home prices as they set down roots.

Meanwhile, the Millennial generation has astronomical tuition costs that saddle them with debt. Beyond that, the cost to buy a home in the Bay Area is prohibitive for most.

Most galling to the younger generation: those who are established don't seem to care, according to the article.  Food for thought.
