This conference will bring together scholars from a variety of fields to discuss the impact that aging populations will have on asset values. As populations in Canada and other countries continue to age, debate has been mounting regarding the impact the changing population distribution may have on economic growth, asset values, inflation, funding of social programs, taxation, and the social contract. This workshop will lead to the development of better methods to quantify the impact of population aging on asset values.
Donna Lero is a Professor in the department of Family Relations and Applied Nutrition at the University of Guelph and is the Jarislowsky Chair in Families and Work.
