The Ageing World explores the fast changing world where the long-living individuals will have to live effectively, and effective living will become a social compulsion. The shrinking workforce won’t be able to carry the burden of the elderly population. The overall effect of the new demography will depend on what people make of their later life. This volume explores burgeoning new world we all will face. Globalisation, already a reality, will be hastened by the new element of unequal greying.
