Abstract

Aging is a social question, but it is also a political and economic issue of the utmost importance because it effects our economy and the collection of taxes in our societies and it questions our system of values, especially when we bear in mind that individualism, isolationism and people's loneliness predominate today. All of these factors demand forceful political measures separated from short term electoral slogans but having a vision for the future. This text is adapted from the report the author gave at the Menéndez Pelayo International University.
