The inevitability of raising the retirement age

From The Panel, 4:40 pm on 15 February 2018

The discussion around the retirement age has come up again, with former ANZ chief economist Cameron Bagrie stating it's "inevitable" that it will have to be raised. Previous governments have refused to touch the retirement age and while Labour had once campaigned on the issue, Jacinda Ardern promised not to alter eligibility while Prime Minister. We ask Mr Bagrie how long the country can go before the money runs out.
