The New Aging Marketplace and Its Impact on Older Americans

Thursday, December 13, 2012 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. PST
Register online 

Americans over the age of 50 already control most of the financial assets of America and command an enormous share of consumer spending. In the next two decades, that proportion of older consumers will grow dramatically. Yet business organizations, inspired by "youth culture," have been slow to recognize this marketplace in all its complexity. In this webinar, we look at the marketplace in terms of distinctive "silver industries" that will grow in years to come: health care, financial services, retirement housing, and travel and hospitality.  We look at opportunities and also at pitfalls, both for business and for older Americans themselves, as we move into this new aging marketplace.
