Coming of Age during the Collapse of the USSR
A big problem with the up and coming US meritocracy is that they came of age during the 'End of History' and the collapse of the Soviet Union. The 90's were a time when laissez-faire had been proven right and it simply isn't in the ideological make up of the 35-55 set to think of another way of running a society. It's not just about reflecting ruling class self-interest, for the most part they have no answers.
