Working men generally reach their higher positions of power and higher income during their late 40s and 50s...if you are a professional, CEO or holding public office, you reach your potential possibly in your 60s...
The reality of most careers: Late 40s and 50s are the prime, in which experience is balanced with relatively good physical vigour.

^physical vigor is actually the waning time during that age.
Theoretically, our prime is during 30-50; for athletes, it is before 30.
Now, back to the issue with the developed world.
The developed world has almost witnessed the plateau of standard of living and quality of life; then, we still have many unsolved diseases and social issues.
For example, the obesity and overweight crisis in North America; ironically, people of lower socio-economic standings are more likely to be obese or overweight in North America.
Youths may have lost their aspirations for better lives because they have enjoyed so much early in their lives; then, can they aspire to help others to reach their potentials?
We still have not reached our full potentials as humans; should efforts be paid here as well?
