David Bloom on the economics of ageing populations

From Nine To Noon, 9:37 am on 20 October 2014

Professor David Bloom is a specialist in economics and demography based at the Harvard School of Public Health. He consults internationally to public and private sector organisations, including divisions of the United Nations, the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. He says an ageing population need not be an economic burden - and explains how such a burden can be avoided.
