Longevity Is Opportunity: Riding the Demographic Wave
Wednesday, May 1, 2013 / 2:45 pm - 3:45 pm
We hear daily about the burden of entitlements, the inadequacy of pensions, the rising costs of health care and the challenges of disease. These realities are daunting, to be sure, but they mask another perspective. The aging of our population - the demographic wave - is about much more than bad news. This seismic shift will change health care, jobs, education, housing, transportation, technology, travel, consumer products and entertainment. It will create new stages of life and new expectations for our mature years. Tackling these burdens and realizing these opportunities will require insight and innovation in both the public and private sectors. An emerging longevity market will reveal opportunities for business leaders and investors to capitalize and achieve breakthrough results. In this session, a group of visionary thinkers describe the issues and the possibilities in the years to come.
