Shall we, could we live forever? Join Peter Isztin for a captivating SuperSalon with Andrew J Scott, distinguished fellow economist and renowned expert on longevity and aging. Together, we will dive into the multifaceted implications of extended lifespans and explore their wide-ranging effects.
Andrew J Scott is a leading Professor of Economics at the London Business School with a background that includes lecturing at both Oxford and Harvard, bringing a wealth of experience to our much-awaited salon. As co-founder of The Longevity Forum, an organization dedicated to promoting a healthier lifestyle he will guide us through ways in which we can make sense of an ageing Western world and its economic effects, all without losing sight of our own individual flourishing and the art of living – and ageing – well. In his book “The 100-year Life“, Andrew explored the exciting and challenging implications of longer life expectancy for our finances, education, career, and relationships, topics we’ll be covering at our event.
“Now the majority can expect to become old, with the real prospect of living into one’s 90s. The fastest growing demographic group globally are those aged over 100. It is estimated today that there are just over half a million centenarians and this figure is expected to reach more than 3 million by 2050 and nearly 9 million by 2070.” – Andrew J Scott
