Title: Baby boomers reach retirement, but not yet old age - A generational viewpoint to population ageing
Author: Karisto, Antti
Abstract: The paper offers a generational viewpoint to population ageing with the example of the Finnish baby boomers. The paper first outlines the special characteristics of the Finnish baby boomers as a cohort and a generation. Secondly, it goes on to shortly describe their life courses in order to build an understanding on what their future life might be. Finally, the paper discusses the coming retirement years of the boomer generation in terms of the emergence of the “third age”, i.e. a life period between working age and old age proper. The concept of the third age may offer an alternative viewpoint to population ageing, which so often is discussed only in terms of increasing pension expenditures and care burden.
