AgeLab Director Joe Coughlin sat down for a video interview for MarketWatch, published on May 1. In the interview, Dr. Coughlin identifies the challenges of planning in an era of longevity, when our retirement years span 8,000 days on average - a fourth of our lives. "The future of investment is to ensure that our lifespan does not outpace our wealthspan. A very long run, not just a short retirement." Dr. Coughlin discusses how Millennials should prepare for an elongated retirement, the costs of managing multiple chronic conditions, the rise of new technologies and specialty healthcare services for older people, and the prudence of saving money into our sixties and beyond.
