Business

The consumer marketplace for aging is a booming one, what with the baby boomer cohort turning age 65 at a rapid clip. But Business & Aging at ASA means something more: We analyze and advise on retirement trends, ageism in marketing and workforce issues. How long should we work and will there be enough of a caregiving workforce to take care of us as we age? You’ll find thoughts on these questions, as well as perspectives on smart retirement planning, the complexities of long-term-care insurance  and recareering and many other such transitions in later life. The business of aging is our business, so check in here for the latest information and news.

Even a few months into 2018, policymakers, reporters, economists, accountants and ordi­nary Americans are still working to understand the impact of the tax law that Republicans passed in a mad rush at the end of 2017. Little attention, however, is being paid to how the new law affects older adults.

Broke, But Not Broken: Baby Boomers & Their Not-So-Golden Years

I know you, I know you,” he says, this man I have never seen before. “Aren’t you that woman who’s …” and his voice trails off.

Wednesday’s General Session, titled “Ending Senior Poverty: Why We Can’t Wait,” included both a pointed call to action from ASA Chair Bob Blancato and a major announcement from Public Policy Chair Bill Benson, but AARP Foundation President Lisa Marsh Ryerson was the one who got everyone out of their seats.

She told a spellbound crowd exactly why #WeCantWait, and the Twitter storm that followed led at least one editor in Lower Manhattan to contact ASA to find out what all the fuss was about.
