Approximately two-thirds of #workers ages 45 to 74 say they have seen or experienced #age #discrimination in the #workplace. Of those, a remarkable 92% say age discrimination is very or somewhat common. How can we change this cultural narrative? http://on.wsj.com/1z29wE3
British film star Michael Caine has a philosophy that has kept him, at age 81, a busy man in youth-obsessed Hollywood.

In 2030, if #Americans #consume on average three fewer 12-ounce sugar-sweetened #drinks per month, the number of obese Americans would be reduced by 2.6 million, and will produce an overall savings of more than $25 billion for the U.S. #health-care system. http://bit.ly/1uyTdQu
Each day, Americans make choices about what they will eat and drink. Often, these are unhealthy ones, contributing to a national obesity rate of more than 33 percent. Lowering this rate is key to controlling rising health-care costs and improving quality of life. Milken Institute health economists

The U.S. spends more on #health care than other developed #countries, about 18% of #GDP, but some argue that U.S. #patients don't derive sufficient benefit from this #spending. What's the best method to judge the relative #productivity of health care? A piece by Tomas Philipson, our senior fellow. http://onforb.es/1yx0eNa
It is common for health policy experts to argue that US health care spending is wasteful compared to its European counterparts because we are not getting better health for the larger amount of spending taking place here.

Firms led by #women are growing at five times the rate of those led by men, but women #CEOs have access to just two percent of venture capital. How can #California work to change this? bit.ly/1pYXryb

On the surface, #market #liquidity seems to be #healthy, but closer inspection reveals that it's not the case. Here are two factors that have caused institutional #investor #bond holdings to rise and #dealer #inventories to fall. http://bit.ly/1vWoKKG

#Aging doesn't have to represent inevitable decline, dependency, and disengagement. A large majority of aging people remain #productive and seek to change the narrative on being "#old." http://bit.ly/1ABLGma
