"Editor Hudson (social policy, Boston U.) and contributors note that in the USA alone, over 76,000,000 baby boomers are careening toward retirement. While they acknowledge that the generation that demanded sports utility vehicles and birthing rooms may present an extraordinary challenge to eldercare, it is not necessarily true they will cause skyrocketing
tax rates and decreased retirement and health benefits for later generations. They also explain how, with proper management of available resources, the retirement of massive numbers of baby boomers will not necessarily increase inflation, cause political instability, create generational conflict, or reduce services to others in need. They separate fact
from fear as they explain proven policies that consider demographics and the social profile of boomers, explain how private personal finance options can shoulder some of the load, and comment on mitigating factors such as green living, mobility and advances in elder care."
