Here, Jeremy Seabrook examines the real implications of the ageing phenomenon and challenges our preconceptions about how it should be tackled. Arguing that the accumulated skills and experience ofthe elderly should be employed to enrich society, rather than being perceived as a "burden", he makes a case for a radical re-thinking of our attitude to population issues, migration, social structures and employment policy.
