The last livening baby boomer is now forty nine years old.If that's the case, let's give him a good long life and figure he will die at the age of 90.We have 4 decades ahead of us in which to deal with these people?Not all of these baby boomers will live to this ripe old age.See here-http://www.worldlifeexpectancy.com/usa/life-expectancyTruth is, it isn't friggin' very likely.A reasonable time period for these individuals who have done nothing wrong (short of being born when it was in fashion) to be an actual problem for our economy is realistically about three decades with a pretty substantial downturn of their population occurring much sooner.So let's say that they will actually be a problem for about 20-25 years.Instead of predicting the end of life as we know it because the baby boomers are going to suck us dry, why don't we just come up with a temporary plan that will carry us over?Our children and their children will not be burdened by this epidemic, will they? Of course not. They will be burdened by whatever debt we rack up, of course, but this specific burden will someday subside and there will be other problems to solve.What if we sent them all to Miami?k (baby boomer who might like it in Miami)
