Foreword by Sylvester I. Schieber
In the coming half-century, the proportion of elderly in the populations of developed nations will nearly double, challenging the sustainability of old-age pensions and health care. This book examines the extent of that challenge and offers probabilistic forecasts for the Group of Seven industrial nations.
This book is must reading for executives and policymakers who want to survive the twenty-first century. -- Dallas Salisbury, President, Employee Benefit Research Institute, Washington D.C.
