 We are experiencing a double tipping point on both age and wealth dimensions. The world is getting steadily older—mature, settled adults over the age of 30 are now half the population and growing & the world is getting steadily richer—about half the world is now middle class or richer. Combining income trends across demographic segments =approximately 2.2 billion young and poor, the same number of old and rich people, & 1.6 billion young and rich and the same number of old and poor.

Something to look forward to?https://singularityhub.com/2020/03/01/for-the-first-time-ever-the-world-is-mostly-middle-class-and-largely-old/‬

Interesting- the young think older people are well off and we are.
