16 October 2012, The Actuarial Profession, Staple Inn Hall, High Holborn, London, WC1V 7QJ, 16:00 (for a 16:30 start) - 18:30
Recently, the EU’s 2012 Ageing Report argued that “the long-term public expenditure projections reveal a daunting challenge for policy makers in the EU… the fiscal impact of ageing is projected to be substantial in almost all Member States, with effects becoming apparent already during the next decade”.
During the event we heard from various speakers on the subject of the cost of our ageing society, and there was an opportunity for delegates to respond.
Are we adequately considering the long term economic costs of longevity?
Or are we overestimating the impact?
Are some countries responding better than others to the economic cost of ageing?
How can governments across the world best respond to the fiscal challenges of demographic change?
How can policymakers best react to the cost of ageing?
ILC-UK will publish a policy brief following the event, summarising the latest thinking on the ‘cost of our ageing society’, drawing in particular on the EU 2012 Ageing Report and the Office of Budget Responsibility’s (OBR) Fiscal Sustainability Report.
