I'm 34 and one of the last generation x people. Here is a list of generations in the USA: The lost generation born 1883-1900 The greatest generation born 1901-1924 The silent generation born 1925-1945 The baby boomers born 1946-1964 Generation X born 1965-1980 Generation Y or Millennials born 1980-2000 Generation Z born 2001-?
It depends on what future you are considering. Yes, people aged 18-30 are people who will be moving into positions of work and making their own lives, but people of younger years are considered the future even more, by some people, because they are just now in their years of education.
When speaking in terms of business and political power, it is people in their fifties who have the most. My generation, born from 1945 through 1960, and called "the Baby Boomers", are the ones who hold the most power right now. In ten to fifteen years, we will have moved on, and the next generation will take over.
