You may live to 100. In fact, a researcher at Stanford predicts that someone alive today may live to 200!

In the link below, you will see a summary of research from Stanford University calling for action and change in America. I hope you find the ideas provocative. Some of them you might even find offensive, stupid or silly.  Here are some interesting ideas:

  1. Half of today’s five-year-olds can live to the age of 100.
  2. Century-long lives can afford children more time to explore, discover, and create. Maybe it is OK that many young adults are moving back in with mom and dad?
  3. Similarly, people can work longer, perhaps much longer than the traditional age 65! And companies benefit from their experience!

“We find powerful evidence that redesigning systems and institutions that enable healthier, more productive, longer lives for all will have measurable, positive economic impacts.” Stanford Center on Longevity
