Abstract

Exaggerated rhetoric accompanies many of the contemporary claims about the ageing of the Australian population. Even the more reasoned of the claims about ageing and the economy often generate more heat than light. The best way to clarify the problem is to expose such contributions to evidence and argument, showing the flaws in the rhetoric used to buttress the view that we face a serious ageing problem.
