New Foundations podcast series: Episode 4 – The New Old
The world's population is getting older. Some fear that ageing populations will put ever greater pressure on health systems, social care, housing and public finances. But should we be thinking differently about ageing? What are the opportunities in a so-called silver economy?
In this episode, we explore how technology can support people to age better while reducing the burden on health systems, how longer lives call for a reimagining of our economy, and how frontier science is finding ways to further lengthen our life spans.
