I recently watched a documentary telling of a future where genetic breakthroughs lead to the end of major cancers, leading to significant life extension (in full here ); I read an article about futurist Ray Kurzweil, and life extension in the New York times ; I saw a trailer for a new film of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, in which the main character ages in reverse; and I learned of a discovery, where scientists have effectively reversed muscle-aging in mice. It all throws up questions about ethics, Frankenstein creations, etc, but personally, I can't wait. For sure, living more healthily into older age requires new thinking about consumption and savings patterns and the relationship between demographics and equity returns. And then there is the wondrous benefit of compounding your savings over those extra years. It almost makes me wish I cared more for money than I do!
