How the millennial generation and a new “sharing economy” are transforming the way cities function - Baltimore magazine

How the millennial generation and a new “sharing economy” are transforming the way cities function - Baltimore magazine | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Something about the empty driveway next to his off-campus house in Georgetown always bugged Nick Miller. But he couldn’t quite put his finger on it. Not until a trip to a Baltimore Ravens’ game took him through Federal Hill. There, driving with friends, desperate for parking, Miller saw residents holding up cardboard signs advertising spaces for rent. And it hit him. Sure, parking demand reaches naturally epic proportions on game days around M&T Bank Stadium; Miller, who grew up in Harford County, knew that. But finding convenient downtown parking in Baltimore and Washington, D.C., was always like searching for a needle in a haystack. Could digital technology, he wondered, fill those empty driveways, lots, and parking pads with actual cars in real time?

Majority of millennials don’t have a college degree — and that’s going to cost all of us

Majority of millennials don’t have a college degree — and that’s going to cost all of us | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
There’s a lot of hoopla in the media about how Millennials are the best-educated generation in history, blah, blah, blah. But according to a Pew survey, that’s a distortion of reality. In fact, two-thirds of Millennials between ages 25 and 32 don’t have a bachelor’s degree. The education gap among this generation is higher than for any other in history in terms of how those with a college degree will fare compared to those without. Reflecting a trend that has been gaining momentum in the rest of America, Millennials are rapidly getting sorted into winners and losers. Most of them are losing. That’s going to cost this generation a lot —and the rest of society, too.
