With 10,000 boomers in the US turning 60 each day, the long-predicted revolutions in longevity and demography are unfolding in front of us. By 2015 we’ll have more Americans over 60 than under 15 — and that’s just the beginning.
For the most part this transformation is portrayed as a source of coming economic, fiscal, and generational strife. In this scenario, boomers are morphing overnight into retirees, and proceeding to weigh down a small group of workers in their middle years — producing an unbearable dependency ratio in the process.
Is there a better way?
