This week’s In Business on BBC Radio 4 (available to listen to via the internet) looks at whether the increasing number of old people that will have to be supported by a shrinking younger workforce is a threat to the way we live or an opportunity for new kinds of business. It includes interviews with people from:
- GE Healthcare
- Dole Food Company
- California Health and Longevity Institute
- In My Prime
- Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Leeds
- Tissue Regenix
- Paris Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics
The programme will be available to listen to for a week at least – probably longer. Look for the ‘Listen Again’ link for the programme New Age. First broadcast 7 January 2010.
