Countries with ageing population should have a retirement age of 70.

Nowadays it's really relevant to talk about such reforms.

    Feb 8 2013: We have mandatory superannuation and our retirement age is currently 65 but creeps up to 67 by 2020 or so. I expect it will be 70 before I retire. I also expect to be quite able to work into my 70's due to modern medicine. Maybe retirement age should be 90% of the average life expectancy on the day you were born. That way it creeps up as life expectancy creeps up.
