The Voyager spacecraft, launched in 1977, were designed with a five-year lifespan to fly past Jupiter and Saturn. 10 So with humans: the design may simply be to meet the demands of successful reproduction, but it is sturdy enough to allow many years of `surplus' living. As if to make the point, 1998 saw the triumphant return to space of astronaut-turned-senator-turned-ageing-guinea-pig John Glenn at the age of 77.

This development has brought to a summary close a brief debate in the mid-1990s about the supposed superiority of `stakeholder capitalism', a term borrowed from management consultants.
