The ILC Global Alliance explores the economic impact of an ageing society.
Yet for policy makers concerned about supporting an ageing society, they are faced with the daunting analytical task of assessing a multitude of projections.

The Netherlands Scientific Council for Government Policy (WRR) recently put a magnifying glass on elderly care in four countries: Japan, England, Germany and Denmark.
