Lara Warburton Pensions

I am a financial advisor, and I can see this Mind Bullet coming. It is interesting that most private pension schemes have moved from defined benefit to defined contribution - meaning monthly pension payments retirees receive are now determined by the amount the individual has contributed during his working life, and how that benefit has been invested and grown clearly has a huge impact on what income he can draw. Rob Rusconi is an independent consultant advising Government on their new pension scheme, and he makes the point that many developed countries have this huge unknown future liability - as poluations live longer than anticipated, and their are less workers currently contributing because of lower birth rates.

Thanks for the Mind Bullets - always good food for thought!

He has seen 61 prime ministers come and go - what has that taught him?

Neil Jacobsohn Turning back the clock of age

We've been talking about science reversing the ravages of aging for a long time now. One of our favourite biotechnology professors used to open his sessions with our clients by stating:" 'The first children that will live to be 120 years old have already been born...'
And now, it seems to be on the verge of happening. The first human volunteers are preparing to test a drug that has shown remarkable promise in reversing aging in mice.
