Aging Population Issues

 

As quoted in this article:

The world is graying at a break-neck pace, and that’s bad news for the global economy.

By 2020, 13 countries will be “super-aged” — with more than 20% of the population over 65 — according to a report by Moody’s Investor Service.

 That number will rise to 34 nations by 2030. Only three qualify now: Germany, Italy, and Japan.

“Demographic transition … is now upon us,” warn Elena Duggar and Madhavi Bokil, the authors of the Moody’s report.

“The unprecedented pace of aging will have a significant negative effect on economic growth over the next two decades across all regions.

There will be a series of upcoming articles focusing on this issue and how technology like IoT can help the aging population. For a start, take a look at these three videos below which will highlight how aging population will impact our future generations and our world.
