Ageing is a big problem in Japan but not such a problem in the US
This report from Pew Research provides some fascinating insights into the global attitude to ageing.
In case you are wondering where the US comes in this list it is off the bottom of the chart (26%).
So if it is perceived as being a problem in 2014 just think of what it is going to be seen as in 2050 (see chart showing the percentage of the 65+)
If you company trades globally then I suggest you get and read the report. Thanks to the people at Pew for such a comprehensive piece of new research about the issues of the ageing population.
Interesting to see that ageing is perceived as a bigger problem in China than it is in the UK. Dick Stroud
