Are the Twenties the New Teens? 8/31/10

Are people in their twenties just refusing to grow up or are we experiencing an inexorable change in the timetable for reaching adulthood? We’re joined by Jeffrey Jensen Arnett, research professor of Psychology at Clark University and author of Emerging Adulthood: The Winding Road from Late Teens through the Twenties and by David D. Burstein, the 21-year-old founder and executive director of Generation18. Read the New York Times Magazine article, "What is it About 20-Somethings" and David D. Burstein's "What the New York Times Missed About ‘20-somethings."
