From the Paper:

"All the generations are in a common race and confronting the same realities of a fast-paced, high-technology, global, very competitive and unpredictable economy (Martin) Being in the same boat and posed before the exact realities in common, how these distinct generations that collide, bruise and even disadvantage one another can be made to translate this damaging condition from a weakness to strength is the challenge."
