Circular reasoning has much ado about nothing.

The future belongs to the young because they will become increasingly successful due to the connectivity and social networks the previous generation did not have.  And because they are successful, they will become increasingly more connected and wired to networks which will bring more opportunities that are also deprived from the previous generation.  These young people will enjoy the ‘soft’ rewards of being a global villager – resources their contemporaries a decade ago only dreamt of having but they are also the cursed generation because they will need to pay an exorbitant price to experience global standard ‘hardware’ infrastructures forcing them to be even more competitive, and more successful than their peers.

Do you see the fundamental problem of circular reasoning?  We cannot never do a root-cause analysis accurately, thus causing a lot of decisions to be made based on guesswork.  It's like saying “only the young die young” - essentially it doesn't really tell you anything.
