The paradox of ageing

Carlos Manuel Pereira da Silva~Real Pedro Corte~Sara Sofia Vaz-Peralta~Jorge Miguel Bravo, Portugal

In the course of the next 20 years, the approximately 2.4 million Portuguese who currently constitute the age group 45 to 64 years will reach the age of retirement. They are known as the “greying panthers” generation because they enjoy long-term employment, they have received more and better education than their parents, they are much better off in terms of financial resources and real estate ownership and on retirement, they will have far greater life expectancy than the generations that preceded them.
