  •  It's bigger than that. (0+ / 0-)

    CEOs in the U.S. are in their 60s; those in Europe are in their 50s.  It's been argued that 50-somethings make more daring and more rational decisions than do 60-somethings.

    If you have worked with people in their 50s and people in  their 60s, it's hard not to favor a lower retirement age from an argument for efficiency and economic growth.

      And I dont care what age you are, I will run your ass ragged.

      I'm that crazy assed younger risk taker, but all grown up, and I learned how to assess risk better than the kids......with the wisdom of the mid 50's age group.

      I can go 35 hours with just naps.

      •  Exactly my point. You won't do that in 2022. (0+ / 0-)

        Move everybody under 62 up a level of responsibility - and income - now and get the dead weight off the executive floor, and the entire economy will benefit. GDP will go up as the number of happy retirees (drawing SS on a max of $70k qualifying income/year) will go up too!
