  • 12. Social and economic implications of population aging • Population aging represents, in one sense, a success story for mankind – But it also poses profound challenges to public institutions that must adapt to a changing age structure. • Increase in the older retired population, decrease in population of working ages, – Creates social and political pressures on social support systems.
