Addressing inequality and diversity among older people
This chapter examines debates about future demographic patterns. It shows that the case for immediate cutbacks in spending and for the restructuring of pensions, health, and social care to defuse a presumed ‘demographic time-bomb’ is not compelling. The chapter then considers alternative demographic scenarios and sets out some guidelines for policies for coping with future demographic change, recognising the contributions that older citizens can make to society.
