As noted in the WSJ:

Yet millennials, who would most benefit from a real economic recovery, replacing the false one of the past several years, so far seem intent on voting against their interests. There is still hope. We’re moving past the peak of the “authenticity” phase of the campaign cycle, when voters unfamiliar with the field of candidates are initially drawn simply to candidates who seem willing to bluntly speak their minds. John Kasich’s strong performance in New Hampshire might herald the transition to a more constructive phase, when voters—including millennials—are readier to listen to a more nuanced, realistic economic message. If not, today’s young voters may not like the world they inherit, and members of the aging generation risk eventually finding themselves short of the Social Security benefits they thought they had coming.

Is this a reason to require courses in economics in college?  There may be, and one taught by an Austrian economist.  Bernie represents not more of the same, but more of the same increased or accelerated in the direction it has been going the last 8 years.  He represents where the Democrat Party really wants to go.
