2030, by Albert Brooks.

This is writer/actor/director Albert Brooks’ “real story of what happens to America” (as the novel’s subtitle indicates).  Lifespans have been extended through the eradication of cancer and the population of the United States is huge, tilted toward “the olds,” and straining the resources and future of youth.  And then Los Angeles disintegrates in an earthquake, providing the opportunity for an ingenious economic solution.
