Interesting article by social scientist Arthur Brooks. Air traffic controllers are forced to retire at 56. In Japan, CEOs power through their 70s and 80s. I’ll never forget giving a tech demo to Yashiro-San who became CEO of Shinsei Bank at 71 and still serves as the Chairman today at 90. For me, it’s about a healthy lifestyle, staying relevant in my industry, and maintaining a strong professional network.
Japan may be a good place to avoid retirement if you love to work!
