Alle spalle dei "baby boomers" e' passata del tutto inosservata, considerata poco piu' che un incidente di percorso, la "tredicesima" generazione americana (secondo un sistema convenzionale di contare le generazioni): quella dei giovani nati fra il 1961 e il 1981, che pure oggi costituiscono il segmento piu' grande della popolazione (sono ottanta milioni).

I baby boomers potevano lamentarsi di tutto nei confronti della societa', ma se non altro erano cresciuti in una famiglia; i baby busters spesso non hanno neppure una vera famiglia.

 Welcome to The Barna Group!
Those generations are the Seniors (born in 1926 or earlier); the Builders (1927-1945); the Baby Boomers (1946-1964); the Baby Busters (1965-1983); and the Mosaics (1984-2002).
Busters hated the “Gen X” label because it suggested that they were not even worthy of a name (thus raising the abandonment issue again); insinuated that they are a generic group (might as well have been “brand X”, they figured); and it conveyed a lack of personality on their part.
Boomers accepted the “Baby Boom” title because it was true, they were the first generation to be named in such a high-profile way, and the name implied their strength in numbers.

Clinton, like the rest of the Baby Boomers, later to become the "me" generation of the 1980’s, was largely influenced by the 1960’s counter culture that rejected many of the traditional values held by the previous World War II generation.
