Jim O‘Shaughnessy 认为他和他父母这两代人，以为自己都生活是常态，但实际上不是。
We made a mistake and by that I mean my generation and my parents generation. The mistake we made was thinking that the period from 1946 to 1980 was the norm. No it was not! It was the anomaly! We had just wiped out the manufacturing capabilities of anyone who could challenge us. So the idea that you had that job with the gold watch and you could work there for your entire career and raise a family of four and all of that, that was an anomaly. In the late 1950s Detroit was selling 80%+ of all autos sold in the world.
相对应的，在中国，我们80，90后这一代人生活的这40年（1980 - 2020）也不是常态，我们经历的这些，可能都不会再发生。
