"Exquisitely poor": As a buzzword, the meaning of the word is to describe a way of life that is common among young people. A quote says, "Although I didn't make a lot of money, I didn't give up the pursuit of 'exquisiteness'. In my point of view, because of this, I was able to live a fulfilled life. I became poor for the life I yearn for and the things I like. (Spend most to all of money on desired products) Despite my lack of finances, I live happily and brightly."

"Young Adult": Between 18 and 25 years old.

Round 1
Pro
My argument is simple. We have the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. If the youngster is happy (third fulfilled), living his life (first fulfilled), and is exercising his rights to spend money on whatever he wishes, and isn't imposing on anyone, there isn't a problem. Sure, you may eventually have to invest money later, but it's entirely justifiable to spend money now and worry about investments later. It's also difficult to say with 100% certainty that "exquisitely poor" people would have zero value in other property like real estate or stock.
