How Can Older Workers Compete 
In An Economy That Values Youth?
Charles Hugh Smith* offers advice & guidance for older workers in the economy .. suggests starting your own enterprise to fill scarcities & create value in the community .. 
1. Target sectors that haven't changed much. 
2. If at all possible, get your healthcare coverage covered by a spouse or plan you pay.
3. If you have any computer-network-social media skills, you can get paid to help everyone 55+ with fewer skills. 
4. Focus on fields where managerial experience & moxie is decisive.
5. Reliability matters. The ability to roll with the punches, show up on time, do what's needed to get the job done, & focus on outcomes rather than process are still core assets in a work force.
6. If nobody will hire you, start your own enterprise to fill scarcities & create value in your community.
