The benefits of an ageing population

4 May 2004
Description

Judith Healy examines the benefits that an ageing population will bring to many areas of Australian life and concludes that there is a silver lining to the fog of pessimism currently clouding the perceptions of policy makers and governments. While the costs of an ageing population are likely to be lower than has been suggested by some, the silver lining identified in the paper is a product of the many benefits and new opportunities that are likely to emerge as Australia's largest ever generation of retirees approaches the age where they have the time, the money, and the experience to play an active and important role in Australian communities.
