I'm too young to retire

"Carlos Slim's Remedy For World's Economic Woes: Lift Retirement Age To 70":

The world’s richest man has urged struggling nations to lift workers’ retirement age to 70 and privatize as many infrastructure assets as possible to help shore up their economies, Mexican press reported on June 12.

Mark my words, the right in this country is going to try to treat us as a "struggling nation."

Moreover, countries should have people work until they are older to reflect longer life expectancy rates, Slim reportedly said. He noted the ideal work schedule should be 10-11 hours three times per week for people over 60 to allow them to have more days to "innovate, create and cultivate themselves."

... and retired people can't do those things?

grygusSo a guy who has lived a rich life based upon the work of other people says that other people should work more. What a revelation.

AngrySquirrelNot to mention a guy who lives in, and made his fortune in, one of the most unstable countries in the world. Although the fact that this strategy has never worked in any country is reason enough not to follow it. Look what happened to Russia.
