Happy About Being a Baby Boomer by P-HappyAbout

VIEWS: 15 PAGES: 6

Catherine Kitcho, Author of "Happy About Being a Baby Boomer: Facing our Newfound Longevity", has been a baby boomer all her life and has been fascinated by the social, political and cultural impacts that this generation has had upon American life. The first wave of baby boomers is now turning 60. Now that life expectancy has increased dramatically over the last 2 decades, baby boomers must face the fact that we will be around an extra 30 or so years. This raises significant issues: how healthy are we going to be during those extra decades, and will we be able to get health insurance? Also, how much money will it take just for the basics of living 30 more years (and will we be able to afford our current lifestyle)? These questions need to be answered before we can determine what else we will be able to do with our "extra decades". The goal of this book is to kick-start boomers into dealing with the issue NOW, before they become ill or too old to work. Boomers must first face the fact of their probable longevity so they can then put a concrete plan in place. They must figure out how much it's going to cost just for the basics of living several more decades than planned. 'Happy About Being a Baby Boomer' is a practical 'workbook' to use in planning your remaining decades of life. Only then can they figure out how much money (if any) they will have left for their family, their education, recreation and their legacy.
