Lisa Berkman and colleagues discuss opportunities for and challenges of older people in the workforce
"No rest for the graying" - Harvard Gazette. 2/12/2016.
Panelists at Harvard discussed how workers, employers, and policymakers are rethinking the ways older age populations in many developed and developing nations will spend their 'retirement years.' Lisa Berkman said the demographic shift caused by expanding life spans and declining birthrates is novel and critical: “Never before in human history have we had aging societies. And by aging societies we mean there are more people over 60 than there are under 5.”
