Right on point, albeit with gender slant, from today's WSJ:

How Older Women Are Reshaping U.S. Job Market - WSJ

I think the link should work for those without subscriptions, although maybe not for the 100th person to use it....

First of all I don't care what is cool or in fashion. I don't care about what people think that I should or shouldn't do. I passed up on many things to buy. I did all of my own home improvements until my skill level forced me to hire someone to do it. I went to 15 year mortgages to pay off the house faster. I elimated all of my debts. I lived on the same amount of money for the last ten years and socked away the surplus. Any bonus went into the bank after giving to charities. All this was done so I can retire in 5 1/2 weeks at 60 1/2. I agree that dying at my desk is on the bottom of my wish list.

I have never believed in status symbols. I would much rather have $ in my investments than in a big house or car or bling to show off to the neighbors. RE for me!!!

Jeb Bush said that we should all just realize that we need to work to 70. REally? Will he? Also people in physical jobs won't be able too.
