Longevity is here to stay – embrace it

The Financial Times recently published a column arguing that “70 is the new 50.” That sounds about right to me at the moment, but it won’t stay that way for long. Longevity and — more importantly — health is about to radically extend. The FT column has a nice profile of a man named Charles Eugster who wishes he could sign up for modern dating services, but is disappointed that their upper age limit is 70. A market opportunity, anyone?
