Sweden


Back to School for Aging Swedes
Shannon Roberts | Mar 15 2013 | comment  

Sweden, grappling with increasing longevity, is considering both raising the retirement age to 75 and a state education plan for people in their 50s.  Will the future see us leaving school at 18 to return for re-training when we’re 50?  No matter what the solution, current welfare expectations can no longer be met if the retirement age (and mindset) remains as it is.
