Paul Krugman On How to Live to Be Over 100

Paul Krugman
He writes in his private email:
Wanna live to be more than 100? The trick, it turns out, is to be born someplace with bad record-keeping.
Apparently, areas where clusters of supercentenarians live correlates with poor, high crime areas. In other words, it is areas where younger siblings or others might be more likely to steal the identity of dead individuals to double-dip on pensions.

Which, of course, means that in the shorter run we are all really dead.
