On Raising the Retirement Age

Ezra Klein looks at the US case, but the points he makes are applicable to France.

To Klein's reasoned questions about the fairness of raising the retirement age, I would add one of sustainability on the job and productivity. How long can people keep up the pace and level of output demanded? Lifetimes are being extended but in which part of the aging process? Modern medicine can keep people going on and on long after they have ceased to be capable of working. A person can be infirm for a very long time.
