How to make the most of our ageing society: LBS Professor featured in City AM

Professor of Economics and former Deputy Dean Andrew Scott has written a piece for City AM discussing the implications of the UK's ageing population.

In his article, titled The longevity dividend: how to make the most of our ageing society, Professor Scott examines the economic benefits to longer life expectancy and an increasingly ageing population in the country, including that this shows us to be leading healthier lifestyles and that mortality rates are decreasing simultaneously - before discussing how we can use this to our advantage and adjust work patterns accordingly.
