The number of Americans age 65 and older will nearly double between 2010 and 2030. A decline in working-age taxpayers and increased demand for entitlements will pressure public programs aimed at older people as labor-force growth slows. What will this shift mean for the nation’s economy, and what are other implications of this demographic wave?
Find out in a new Atlanta Fed ECONversations with economists Toni Braun and Karen Kopecky.
ECONversations explore the economics behind subjects like oil and gas prices, the cost of living, GDP, and now population aging. Have a question about the economic consequences of an aging population? Tune in and ask Karen and Toni during the live webcast.
