"Of all the people in human history who ever reached the age of 65, half are alive now."

Wow.

I agree that retirement will have to change. Actually, I think employment itself will radically change in my lifetime, not only because of aging populations, but also the rising cost (in time and money) of education and the demands of family life, particularly for women.

But...can the baby boomers not just let go? Even in their old age, everything's going to be pioneered by th em?

LOL. As a trailing edge Boomer, rest assured you aren't the only one who grows weary of self-importance of my older generational siblings. :-)

However, just because of the sheer size of the generation, when we collective adopt patterns of behavior it tends to compel societal institutions to adapt to those behaviors, whether there is conscience effort to change things or not.

When Baby Boomers actually get intentional about changing things you get the U.S. Congress of recent years. :-)
