Rethinking population aging

Life expectancies in the EU have increased significantly over the past decades and are expected to continue increasing. Age-specific health statuses have also generally been improving. In contrast to these profound changes, the concepts that demographers have used to analyze aging on a population level have remained largely static. The substantial changes in life expectancy and health status have rendered these traditional demographic measures inadequate for the analysis of aging at the population level in the 21st century.

Arts, Economics and the Irrational - Gloria Benedikt at IIASA

"Art and culture will be key in helping us overcome some of the most pressing global problems we face today. Only if we manage to leave self-interest behind and come together as one, will we be able to overcome imminent threats, such as global warming, and be able to peacefully share our planet amongst 7 billion people and more. The key quality we will need to posess, especially in the western world, is empathy. And it is not economics, not science but art and culture that cultivates this quality."
