[Registration open] 78th Breakfast Meeting – Knowledge from the field of financial gerontology for facing a super-aged society (July 3, 2019)
date : 6/6/2019
Longer life expectancies around the world mean that society is facing serious and urgent socioeconomic effects due to aging and more people experiencing medical problems caused by age. Past meetings and research conducted by HGPI have also demonstrated that greater commitment to supporting and enriching the lives of people with dementia from the perspective of those effected by the disease is necessary if we are to build a society in which people can live together with dementia more easily. It has been indicated that to achieve this, it is important we take a cross-cutting societal approach involving various industries and academic disciplines that are closely related to people’s everyday lives that is not limited to the field of healthcare. In particular, interest in the roles of finance and economics is increasing.
With that in mind, we have invited Professor Kohei Komamura (Professor, Keio University Faculty of Economics; Director, Research Center for Financial Gerontology, Keio University Institute for Economic Studies) to the 78th Breakfast Meeting to help us to deepen our understanding of financial gerontology in preparation for a super-aged society together with all participants.
