Ditchley’s Canada Conference on Demographic Change Features in The Observer


Sonia Sodha, chief leader writer at The Observer and a Guardian/Observer columnist, was an attendee at The Ditchley Foundation’s recent conference in Canada (June 14-16) that asked Does older mean poorer? What will demographic change mean for economic prosperity and social cohesion in developed economies?

In a column for The Observer linked here, she writes that the falling birth rate threatens a disaster so costly that no politician dares think about it.
