The Longevity Revolution

GUESTS: Theodore Roszak Author, America The Wise: The Longevity Revolution and the True Wealth of Nations [Houghton Mifflin, 1998] Todd Gitlin Professor of Culture, Journalism & Sociology, New York University Author, The Twilight of Common Dreams: Why America is Wracked by Culture Wars [Paperback, 1996] When you think of the sixties, what comes to mind? The Vietnam War, Peace Marches, The Beatles ... and Young People ... lots of young people who wanted to change the world. Now those "young people" are middle-aged and getting older. And once again, by virtue of their sheer size, they are changing society and how it views "older" people.
