49: The False Economic Narrative of Youth With Vadim Verkhoglyad

Update: 2023-07-11


Welcome to the Strategic Financial Leadership podcast! In this episode, host Steve Coughran chats with Vadim Verkhoglyad, Vice President and Head of Research Publication at dv01. Together, they dive into a thought-provoking summary that challenges common media narratives about American households.

The summary suggests that many media narratives focus on the constant struggles of American households and miss the substantial income gains and wealth effects experienced by a wide variety of households in recent years, particularly those at the lower end of the income spectrum. Gen Z is a prime example of this trend, with economic prospects ranging from significantly stronger than millennials on age-adjusted metrics to all-time record highs among numerous key metrics. Steve and Vadim discuss the value of increased financial literacy, how effectively people respond to financial incentives in shaping their futures, and the utility of expanding financial access and knowledge. They argue that these factors are crucial for long-term outcomes and are often overlooked in discussions of generational wealth and economic progress.

Throughout the episode, Steve and Vadim offer insights and thoughtful analysis based on their experience and expertise in the field. They bring fresh perspectives to complex economic concepts and make them accessible and understandable for listeners. Tune in to this episode of the Strategic Financial Leadership podcast to gain a new perspective on contemporary media narratives about American households and to learn more about the value of financial literacy and access.
