Ken Dychtwald - The Consequences of Human Life Extension

A very interesting and well-delivered talk on aging and the inevitable and dramatic changes that will take place in society and in individual lives over the coming decades as people in the West grow increasingly older and older and older. Also available on iTunes.

One memorable quote: “Of all the humans who have ever lived over 65, two-thirds are now alive now.”
