  • There seems to be a common view that the youth of today do not live up to the expectations of the older generation. It is assumed, for example, that youth are less responsible, less concerned about public interests and social services, and have an insufficient knowledge about social and political affairs. It is further believed that youth are more materialistic and hedonistic, self-oriented, short-sighted, and have a liberal attitude towards marriage and sex. With all these assumptions, the author will attempt an analysis on values by studying various youth reports published in the 1990s. Surprisingly, data and analyses from these reports do not support the common negative perceptions on youth. In contrast, many positive values can be found in relation to their attitudes towards family, work, education and friendship. This paper, therefore, argues for the need to develop a different attitude towards Hong Kong's youth.
