I should note that real longevity treatments, of the type posited by Aubrey De Grey, are not about extending the time when you're old (and retired, and expensive) but about extending the time when you're young (and earning, and healthy). That is, the effect of longevity on the demographic time bomb would be to stop it dead, by removing the whole concept of "the elderly" and replacing it with "people who need some medical treatment to get back into work".
