    The biggest rent seeking on young people is actually education cost, now followed by mandatory insurance that is designed to make them subsidize another demographic group. Record percentage of the young generation is avoiding housing "rent" by moving in with their parents. Buying a house is more of a concern for the slightly older generation in their 30's and 40's, gen-X.

    Maher is making a good case proving people often become poor and desperate due to their own bad judgement

    Nice try, but the average wage in the 1950s afforded people a middle class home, a vacation home, and enough to raise 4 children on a single salary. Today, two salaries doesn't even pay for a middle class home with no children.

    You are talking about home in the most expensive area, where 70%+ of the population are renters. The middle class worker on one salary and 4 kids couldn't afford to buy in NYC in the 1950's either.

    This is despite the fact that today's workers produce six times as much wealth as their 1950s counterparts.

    You are forgetting inflation adjustment to your number, the fact that 20 working age people supported each retiree back then vs. 4 working people for each retiree now.

    $61k a year to study woman's studies?? She will be doing porn for longer than the 4 years of college.

    Maher is making a good case proving people often become poor and desperate due to their own bad judgement, like having two children before either securing a steady mate/partner or having marketable skills, or like taking a $61k/yr program for 4+ years to get a degree in woman's studies.
