Asked whether they believed the economic forecasts, Millennials in the audience of Thursday's BBC EU Debate broadly responded: "No."
Watch the moment, above.
So-called "apocalyptic" economic forecasts have been a mainstay of campaigning for Britain to remain in the European Union.
The Chancellor George Osborne has said that Brexit would cause a year-long recession with hundreds of thousands of job losses.
Yet independent analysis by the Bank of England has also found significant financial risk from leaving the EU.
On Wednesday, the Institute for Fiscal Studies, a well-respected think tank, said that Brexit could cause two years of negative economic growth.
The young audience also used the debate to pillory a panel of politicians for the “petty” state of campaigning.
“I have no idea what to do and I blame you lot entirely," an audience member said.
And responding to disagreement over the validity of Vote Leave’s claim around £350m a day contributions to the EU, a young woman told the panel: “We need statistics that are real and that everyone can agree on.”
The debate was itself earlier embroiled in controversy with the revelation that there was a 26-year age gap between the audience and the political panel.
Two of the politicians, Alex Salmond and Alan Johnson, were both in their 60s.
The youngest panellist was former government minister Liam Fox at 54.
