By Jeffrey Meitrodt Star Tribune March 25, 2019 — 10:37am After 26 years helping his clients try to get rich, Indiana securities broker James Madden thought it was his turn to make a lot of money when a recruiter from Raymond James offered him $150,000 — nearly twice his annual income — to shift his business to the Florida-based firm. Madden said there was just one catch: Each time he failed to reach his sales quota in a three-month period, he would have to repay $7,500.

After all, modern medicine has surely been extending the human lifespan for hundreds of years … hasn’t it? The 17th-century English philosopher Thomas Hobbes famously called life before the modern era “nasty, brutish and short.” People still echo that idea today, albeit without the same pithy elegance. “Hunter-gatherers all died when they were, like, 30,” a friend told me recently. “When the average old age death was people in their 40’s, did they look as old as people in their 90’s or 100’s look now?” asked someone on Quora. Many … [Read more...] about Does Medicine Actually Make People Live Longer?
