According to the Bank of America survey—cited in
EducationLife—of about 600 NYC college students:
26% have jeans costing more than $100 (seems pretty high for college students who can easily buy jeans for $10 in many discount stores in NYC; clothing is cheap in New York, it’s apartments that are expensive)
59% expect to earn more than their parents (seems pretty low considering many of these are probably first generation college students). I think it would be interesting to discuss the students’ economic goals and expectations, why they have the expectations they do, and especially what role communication is going to play in allowing them to realize these goals and expectations.
