Baby Boomers Special Edition
(June 09, 2006) Today's Special Edition Bugler contains another stack of stories about the impact Baby Boomers are having on the idea of age and retirement.
Ebenezer Scrooge would have been happy. Doom, gloom and an Eeyore like pessimism seem to be the appropriate emotions. The retirement program is BS. Work and misery are all that there is to look forward to.
The fantasy scenarios are extraordinary. The streets full of pensioners who are functioning without Social Security or Medicare. Gen Y households full of Alzheimer's riddled 70 year olds who are going to live until 95. Euthanasia parlors (like the one in Soylent Green) dot the suburban landscape.
Oh, Lordy, it's grim stuff.
Well, there's no question that the Baby Dearth is going to cause some changes in the landscape. There's even less question that the future won't resemble the past. Dreams of a retirement that involves slowly molding into a grave while playing cribbage at a fishing retreat are probably a thing of the past (unless you want to live in one of these somewhere in West Kansas).
As usual, embracing reality is the key to prospering.
(We're reminded of something we saw in a new client's office that said, effectively, "It is only when we have the courage to face things exactly as they are that a light will develop by which the path can be seen.")
The truth is that life, post 50, will be an adventure for anyone who wishes it to be. It will be a hardship for anyone who wishes things were other than they are. We're getting more excited all of the time about the changes baby boomers are about to make.
