GERON GR 627 Aging and the Economy (A Dynamic Relationship)


The course takes the perspective of administrators of a variety of aging service organizations and examines the most pertinent and pressing economic policy issues in the United States as related to older persons, their families, the local community and states. Economic status of the elderly population is influenced by rapidly changing demographics, evolving policy in Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, housing constraints and options, and social support options for elders, the principle topics covered in this course. The course takes a pragmatic perspective on why and how programs have economic benefits or consequences for older persons.
