In 2019, Americans over 60 will outnumber those under 18

In 2019, Americans over 60 will outnumber those under 18

America is becoming an older nation. Does that worry you?

For a country that’s always thought of itself as young, the statistics are a shock to the system! We’re now a more-old-than-young society and with that comes the fear of scarcity, isolation, cost and conflict. What will it take to remove the barriers and bring the generations together? What’s standing in the way of closer ties between older and younger generations?
