Abstract

Population ageing is one of humanity's greatest triumphs. It is also one of our greatest challenges. As we have entered the 21st century, global ageing will put increased economic and social demands on all countries. At the same time, older people provide a precious, often-ignored resource that makes an important contribution to the socioeconomic fabric of our lives. Population ageing raises some worrisome questions for policy-makers. Now that people are living longer, how can we improve the quality of life in old age?
