What Is Society's Obligation to the Aging Population?

Read Transcript

I think society's obligation to all of its population, all of its citizens is to help those people in need, to take advantage of people's skills and what they have to offer. So it's not just older people it's children, it's everybody. We have to think inter-generationally, we have to think about what older people want and need, what their children want and need, what their grand children want and need.

If we can do that, and we can make good social decisions, good policy decisions, then we will have a population that contributes to society and it benefits from society.
