Disruptive Demographics: Inventing the Future of Place and Space
Friday, October 5, 2012
The demographic transition from a primarily young population to an older one is the most profound socioeconomic factor shaping the future of markets and society. On Oct. 5, 2012, the AARP, in partnership with the MIT Agelab, convened a symposium of business leaders, innovators and researchers to discuss the disruptive implications of aging on the future of housing, retail, and community. This report captures the participants’ insights and predictions about the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
