Aging is a disruptive force in many countries and economies. However, global aging is not simply a story of ‘more.’ The new disruptive demographics of aging is not your grandfather's old age.

These new demographics require a radical new view of the changing definition of "old age" and the impact upon society, business strategy and innovation.
