Like I said in a previous post, taxing the hell out of everything doesn't work. People still smoke and people still drink, they're both taxed heavily. Obese people will still buy the food. Iceland will still be cheap with a 20% tax thrown on top. I agree that people should be working longer. We have quite a few centenarians on this island, let alone those in the 80-82 bracket. The one thing I do find odd your post. If you tax unhealthy goods (and it actually works) people will live longer. The "aging time bomb" will be even worse when the next generation reach old age.
