    expect speed in everything; instant gratification
    senseelevated sense of entitlement
    Millennials don't want to be like the older generation; work too much, don't take enough free time (but do they just have a different definition of "work")
    Only 8 AEAs instead of 15!
    Passive majority - extreme elements seem to dictate public debate and dialogue than it used to.
    Increased apathy and cynicism
    Increasing living in niches - separatness - making choices that reinforce ourselves
    Can "sift" our info and associations
    Increased competitiveness - here at university/prof. school level plus globally
    globally cooperative/competitive/connected
