ABSTRACT
The article reports that the global ageing promises to affect every dimension of economic, social, and political life. The developing world as a whole is still much younger, but it too is ageing. Most of the concern about global ageing, especially in the developed world, is primarily focused on the rising fiscal cost of government benefit programmes.
