Yes there are obvious differences due to different eras, but I truly believe millenials are wealthier than any other generation.

Credit is easy to get, but people have more money too. A lot more. Most millenials I know take regular vacations, save appropriately, and live a pretty average life. Without going into debt. The kind of stuff they buy and the lifestyle they lead is a lot wealthier than the one that boomers led at that age.
I'm curious about how children factor into apparent wealth. My parents had kids younger than the current generation. So, they appeared worse off than I am at their age, but that's not a fair comparison as they were raising 3 kids at the time.

Children can alter the wealth balance quite dramatically.
