Thinking Allowed 22/06/22

As someone who gave up the possibility of a high salary to serve others (for the majority of my working life) I’m grateful for the increase in the UK state pension, and I understand younger people feeling aggrieved. Life is very tough for most people right now, especially our young people. In that respect, I have a foot in both camps. My young children and grandchildren won’t have the opportunities I or my grown-up children had, and Brexit has only compounded the problems.

  1. Companies switched from pensions to self-investment; nobody stays forever in a single company. Perhaps there is a modicum of good in the need to constantly reinvent ourselves as the pace of change in the world accelerates and robots and computers consume more work that people did.
