Summary
Far from being an unaffordable burden, Roszak argues, longevity is the true wealth of nations. He envisions the ability to prolong productive and fulfilling lives as a paramount historical achievement rather than a recipe for fiscal disaster. The longevity revolution will force Americans to rethink their attitudes toward death and life, competition and cooperation, wealth and well-being. America the Wise is the first book to offer a comprehensive examination of our changing demographic patterns and to find in them the seeds of a new society based not on the survival of the fittest but on wisdom, compassion, and the survival of the gentlest. Its predictions will ignite a nationwide debate that promises to transform our most fundamental ethical and cultural values as well as our economic and political priorities
