Face up to known economic problems and leave aside the guesswork
Both by luck and by sheer weight of numbers, the baby-boomer generation is the lucky one. It is set to receive at least 15 per cent more public spending over their lifetimes than they pay in tax. Subsequent generations, particularly those born after the 1970s, will pick up the tab, paying in significantly more than they receive.

Surveys show baby boomers are not heartless money-grabbers. They care about their children and grandchildren’s plight. But they have also voted this year in favour of greater benefits for themselves, against higher immigration which would help to pay the bills and, in the 2015 election, against building sufficient property to keep housing costs for younger people under better control.

Neues Geschäft: Kredite für Pensionisten - kaernten.ORF.at
"Es kann natürlich vorkommen, dass der Kredit nicht bis zum Lebensende zurückgezahlt werden kann. Das sei auch kein Problem, sagte Günther Novak, der Erbteil verringert sich um die entsprechende Summe. Die Erben können den Kredit übernehmen, oder wenn es kein Erbe bzw. Testament gebe, würde der Staat einsteigen und die Immobilie verwerten."

Shades of grey
After subtracting housing costs, pensioners’ incomes surpassed those of the non-retired in 2011, finds the Institute for Fiscal Studies. Poverty among pensioners is now below that of working-age people without children (and far below those with). ¶ The rise of swanky retirement homes hints at another trend—wealthiest pensioners’ incomes are soaring away from those of others. The modern labour market favours workers with brains, not brawn. Across the world pay has risen for the highly educated, who continue to reap rewards into old age. Today’s educated elderly are more productive than their predecessors; skills that complement computers—like creativity and management—do not necessarily decline with age. ¶ This is particularly evident in Britain, which relies on the service sector more than almost any other country. With plenty of jobs in finance, media etc, 27% of 65- to 69-yos with degrees are employed, compared with 14% of those with only secondary-school education or below.
