She said: “It’s a huge opportunity because the ageing population is growing anyway. They would be a huge resource because people would be able to work longer and they would have a healthier life, and it would revolutionise the way we look at older people.
“And it would reduce costs in terms of care.”
I am at a loss to understand Professor Judith Phillips on this quote. The ageing population is growing, so how is adding to that an opportunity? The unemployment rate would be up too if everyone was working until 90.
As for costs of care, I don't think that needs explaining. She really hasn't thought it through.
