I must admit, that most people I talk to are gloomy about the future. That doesn't make it true.
These are lagging indicators, unfortunately. But you can form your own opinion about the last 6 years.
I will just say "meh." Could have been better, could have been worse for me.
Granted, I wish I had been part of the tech-boom of the 90's. But I know people personally who have become self-made millionaires (not handed the riches) during the last 6-7 years, so it hasn't been all bad for all people.
