    #201 - Andrew Scott - Society Has Everything Wrong About Ageing

    #201 - Andrew Scott - Society Has Everything Wrong About Ageing

    Andrew Scott is an economist and an author.
    Society has never been so old and yet never had so long still to live. More women had children over the age of 40 than under the age of 20 in 2019 and 1 in 5 women born today will reach 100 years old.
    What does this ageing globe mean for how we should see our life's journey? How should public policy be changed? And what are we going to do with all these old people (including ourselves)?
