Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
With people getting older and healthier it's common sense that they also work longer.

For example, when Bismarck introduced pension at 65, the average German laborer died at 62. So if we should continue in his footsteps people should retire not at 65 like they do today but when they turn 85.

But well, I guess we can do better than Bismarck. 70 is a good age. Or seriously, why don't retire when you feel like it? The longer you work the higher your pension will be.

If Hans Blix can work at 78, so can I.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.

Unfortunately, so can't nurses or firemen or a dozen of different occupations where you dont sit around sipping martinis all day.

As if Hans Blix is some kind of an example for the regular working person...
