Schlesinger Fails to Nail It

From Barbara Ehrenreich’s Fear of Falling, published in 1989:

To Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., who led the search for issues and challenges in the fifties and early sixties, a “cycle” is about to begin again: “There is a lot of pent-up idealism. That will increase and in the 1990s we’ll enter a phase that will be much like the 1930s and the 1960s.” The possibility remained, of course, that the repudiation of greed would be as transient and superficial as the yuppies that immediately preceded it.
