Inequalities of the Future

Access to new treatments | Will the rich live longer? | Open-data Medicine

In the future, some people will live much longer than others. How can we bridge the gap of length and quality of life?

The future brings longer life spans, similar to what has happened in the past 100 years of human evolution. The age gap will become significant and access to new disease treatments, better living standards could become scarce. Or could it become easier thanks to self 3D printed medicines and free pods that decrease cell deprecation?

Imagine you are 80. It is 2060 and you are not approaching the end of your life. Through body enhancements, 3D printed organs and anti-ageing technology you know you can live up to 140. Or even more. What do you do with all that time? Do you enjoy retirement or stay active? Can you have a pension?
