Millennials – Story of Supply and Demand

Millennials are beginning to get the blame for everything in our world that is changing. Whether it’s god or bad, it’s their fault. Change – isn’t that a four letter word?

Sales of cereal are down over 30%, so it’s the millennials fault. That’s according to a recent blog report I read. They’re too lazy to put cereal in the bowl and eat it. The post didn’t take into account that over 70% of the cereal available is sugar coated garbage and they won’t eat it or buy it for their children to eat. They want whole grains and natural sweeteners, that’s the demand.

Another journalist reported that Bernie Sanders didn’t do well in some states because the millennials didn’t vote. Perhaps they weren’t socialists and chose to not vote at all? Again, no demand.

When I tried to by jelly beans for an Eater Basket there was only one choice. 90% of all the offerings for sale were chocolate covered or filled somethings. That must be the demand because small manufactures supply what people demand.

That leads me to Trump vs. Clinton. What the media and GOP old-timers want is someone other than Trump. They’re trying to create demand for someone else, because they don’t want him as President. But the people re demanding something else. The millennials want an outsider that doesn’t represent Wall Street or Washington D.C.

Yet here’s Mrs. Clinton. As crooked as the Clinton’s are, the demand for the social programs they support is greater than honesty. If Trump wants to win he’s going to have to create a path for safe removal from social programs not punitive solutions. The demand for big brother taking care of them won’t go away and without educating the on where the money comes from and where it needs to go is where the demand should be. Otherwise we can continue to supply their demands for socialism without the label.

Until next time – – –
