If We're Going to Live to 100, We Need to Rethink 'Old'

If We're Going to Live to 100, We Need to Rethink 'Old' - Because if we're going to be 'old' for half our life...:
Does it make sense 'to cram all our economic activity into the first half of life? Why work our longest hours at a time when our children are young? Couldn't we take a longer view, one that would allow us to take gap years at any point, so as to take on voluntary work or go into further education?' Since we equate getting older with decline, it's no big shock that we want to believe 60 is the new 40. 'It would be more helpful to think of it as the new 60.'
