I am intrigued as to why the upper age limit stated is 64 when one can't claim the state pension until at least 66 in the UK? But as the graphic above demonstrates the key issue is perhaps people in their 50's, who have felt forced out of the workplace, have years of economic inactivity ahead of them and miss out on the important role of accumulating savings  or pension pre-retirement.

We also have much talk of 'quiet quitting', employees essentially sitting back in their jobs and working to contract or less. In some ways this is more insidious that actually resigning: the employees are still there on the payroll but their contribution is significantly reduced. The Chinese have a great phrase for it: 'touching fish'.

One other thing that's driving me crazy - does anyone have an actual citation for Anthony's original creation of the 'Great Resignation' idea? I believe it dates from May 2021 but I cannot nail this down to one publication item. Help please anyone? Thank You in anticipation!     

Many thanks Anthony! Much appreciated.
