The 100-year life : living and working in an age of longevity

Gratton, Lynda2017
Books, Manuscripts
More than half of children born in developed countries today have a life expectancy greater than 100 years. While we hear about the looming pension crisis and issues with caring for the aged, this is a transformation for which we are currently ill-prepared - as individuals, companies, and governments. Our traditional three-stage approach to working life - education, work, and then retirement - is the reason why so much current government policy is focused on the third stage of retirement. But when life extends, it's not just about the end - it's about the extension of every period within a lifespan. Financially, we can't still plan to retire at 65 if we are going to live on to 100. This title asks the question - can our physical and mental health be maintained by such a long second stage of continuous work?
