WASHINGTON, D.C.--Generational warfare broke out last Wednesday morning on a scorching plaza in front of a posh Washington, D.C., hotel. As his buddies stood by him smiling in support, a young man in khakis and shades told a white-haired older woman, ''You obviously don't understand the capital markets.''
''How much you want to bet you'll feel the same way six months from now, when the market really tanks?'' she shot back.
''It's a bet!'' came the reply, but neither extended a hand to shake.
