Monday 7 February 2005 Response to ‘Pensions: Challenges and Choices’

Policy Watch #7

'There is nothing intrinsically problematic about population ageing either for individuals or for society. On the contrary we should be celebrating our longer, healthier and more prosperous lives. However, there is far too much alarmism and scare mongering about ageing. Anxieties about ageing can lead to genuine problems. Fanning false fears tends to be bad for policy making.'
