SHARE New Economist poll shows '90s nostalgia maybe a little overblown

A new for-fun poll might take some of the wind out of Buzzfeed’s kitten-and-nostalgia induced sails. the Economist/YouGov poll asked Americans what decade they would most like to go back to. Largely driven by those 65 and older, Cold War nostalgia won out: The 1950s topped the list, followed closely by the 1960s. The younger 18-29 generation are torn between the Roaring Twenties for some reason and the only decade they’re familiar with, the ’90s. For some reason, not many seem keen to revisit the ’10s and ’30s
