Delaying aging is great, as long as it doesn’t correspondingly delay my retirement.


Not really a surprise. Would expand the active workforce and make it more healthy on average


Yes let’s look at the world entirely in monetary terms and fuck the societal by-products


Oh boy, here comes all the “but if we invest in longevity, only rich people can afford it!” comments.


Can you imagine seeing economic gains as the primary reason to extend life. I appreciate that there was a study done but it’s not ideal that the argument needed a money angle to be convincing. If there was a study that showed that having extra years with persons loved ones improves the quality of that person’s life wouldn’t be as convincing of a reason as economic gains to a capitalist society.
