Higher interest rates and weak consumer spending growth slow the recovery rate
  • The Entitlement Age has begun. The first wave of the boom generation turned 62 in 2008. The number turning age 62 will continue to grow, peaking in 2022 at a level more than 60 percent above the 2007 level. The aging of Minnesota will affect our labor markets and the demand for privately and publicly provided services
  • Minnesota’s age structure is not unusual, we are very average. Demographic trends affecting Minnesota will be of concern in most other states. Identifying how best to deal with the policy challenges accompanying the aging of the baby boom will be a key to determining the economic success of private firms and state and regional economies over the next two decades.
  • The age groups that will grow the fastest during the next decade are those with the highest average health care costs. Health care costs in Minnesota have been increasing by 8.5 percent per year. The aging of Minnesota will increase that rate of growth. By 2020 Minnesota’s average health care costs are projected to more than double
