“Retirement” (of a dream)

Has anyone considered that the real reason for the present "great recession" is simply that The Baby Boom wants off this ruined/broken/failed (take your pick) planet with a minimum of (old age) fussing?

Think About It: the reality of 2-3 BILLION people (U.S. + China + Europe + Japan + Malaysia + Taiwan + Korea + Singapore +...) all converting to (interest necessitating) "pension” or “retirement" lifestyles at once...

In short: "retirement"--and the overpopulation/resource-scarcity driving the concept as a new normal necessity--is now a main reason the "economy" has changed and will remain changed for many years (maybe half a century or more, assuming "old (unproductive) people" are even physically sustainable after a few more decades of this…)
