Greying Asia: A case of increasing the retirement age?

Posted on July 8, 2013 at 10:48pm 0 Comments

Interesting post on the Asian Development Bank blog around aging populations globally.  It starts off by referencing the following tweets from Hans Rosling:

“Life expectancy at birth in the world: 1960=50 years, 2013=70 years…” 

“Number of births/women in the world: 1960=5.0, 2013=2.5 ...” 

You know it intuitively but fascinating to see the numbers! The graphic below looks at the increase in life expectancy and decline in…

Brad, thanks for your comment to my blog. And to answer your question, Do you think this Socially-Strategic Enterprise movement as you called it is being driven by the "31 flavors of catastrophe," and the fear it has placed in some of us? Or has the trend to act more responsibly always been there but is finally reaching critical mass?, I think it's a little of both. Throughout history there have always been those extraordinary individuals who have done extraordinary things, regardless of the popularity or recognition. At the same time, sadly it seems so many of us are not inspired to act until something drastic happens that forces us to look at our lives and the world in a new way. I know in my own life, for instance, that I've always been conscious about my own decisions and responsibilities to the world, but 9/11 still had such a profound impact on me that I was inspired to do more both in my own life and on a larger scale. I also think the trend has taken hold because of the advances in communication. Through the media and internet, for example, we as consumers, employees, citizens, etc. are more aware of what is going on around us and thus can hold leaders more accountable. This certainly is a trend whose time has come, and I am glad to be a part of it.
