Why the Aging Baby Boomers will not Bankrupt the Next Generation. Today I had a client conference with a fellow, early baby boomer (like me, born in 1946). His daughter was with him and she is a medical student. At a point toward the end of the conference, he brought up the subject of the huge cohort of baby boomers who are soon retiring and would put a terrible demand on medical services, etc. His daughter laughed and said that her professors at medical school say "not to worry". The boomers, they said, are all so overweight that they will die off much sooner than anybody anticipates. (Here, have a Coke.)
