ICR091: Andrew Scott, The 100 Year Life
Does the thought of living to celebrate your 100th birthday fill you with dread? Or can you see the potential for a more stimulating future as a result of having so much extra time?
In this episode of Informed Choice Radio, I speak to Professor Andrew Scott.
Andrew Scott is Professor of Economics at London Business School.
He is also a Fellow of All Souls, Oxford University and Fellow of the Centre for Economic Policy Research.
He previously held lecturing positions at Harvard University, London School of Economics and Oxford University.
In this episode of Informed Choice Radio, we talk about Andrew’s new book (written with co-author Lynda Gratton), which is called The 100-Year Life: Living and working in an age of longevity.
Andrew describes the inspiration for the book, what a 100 year life might look like and how we will need to structure our longer lives in new ways.
Welcome to The 100 Year Life with Professor Andrew Scott, in episode 091 of Informed Choice Radio.
Some questions I ask
-What might the 100 year life look like? What good is a longer life if much of it is spent living in poor health?
-What is the alternative to living a three stage life consisting of education, work and retirement?
-How can people overcome the dilemma of choosing a suitable retirement age, to make sure they don’t outlive their assets?
-How do we encourage people to make short-term sacrifices for really long-term benefits?
