Fifteen Years Later:
Are We Any Safer?
The Atlantic will explore the nation’s homeland security to examine the strengths and remaining vulnerabilities of our security apparatus and our preparedness to prevent the next terrorist attack.
The New Old Age
Since the turn of the 20th century, average life expectancy has been rising steadily. In the United States, we can now expect to live an average of three decades longer than our great-grandparents. As we collectively age, our societal understandings of the rhythms of an average lifespan have been slow to adapt. With nearly 10,000 baby boomers moving into retirement every day, The Atlantic will examine the shape of the new old age and its impact on society.
