Nina L. Diamond on Gen Jones:
Nina has publicly discussed Generation Jones multiple times, including here in August 2022, where she references connotations of the name: “Ah, the “keeping up with the Joneses” thing. That makes sense.”  She’s also written persuasively about why Gen Jones should be split from the traditional definition of Boomers: “It makes sense to split the generation. Those born in 1946 have almost nothing in common with those born in the mid-1950s, and neither of those blocks have that much in common with those born in 1964. Too many changes over those 18 years. Those 18 might as well have been 50 yrs.”
