When I'm 65 (Episode #2003)

KQED World: Tue, Sep 20, 2011 -- 6:00 AM

The first splash of the baby boomer wave hits the symbolic retirement age of 65 this year (2011), and we look into what that means for boomers individually, as a generation, and for the broader society as well. Selfish navel-gazers or generous optimistic activists? In the first of a series on Inside E Street: An overview of America's post-war baby boomers unleashed into their golden age.

Hanging Up The Keys (Episode #2001)

KQED World: Tue, Sep 6, 2011 -- 6:00 AM

As the Baby Boom generation begins turning 65 this year, one of the many issues it faces is driving: When is it time to hang up the keys? While 65 is, in most cases, a little young for most to seriously consider giving up driving, millions of Americans over 50 have parents in their 70s, 80s, and 90s, and for them the issue is front and center.

KQED World: Tue, Sep 13, 2011 -- 6:00 AM

The world is growing older. By the year 2030, one billion people on the planet will be over the age of 65. Plus, for the first time in history, the number of those who are older than 50 will be greater than those under 17. What will be the consequence of an aging global population? How will it affect demographics, immigration, the work force and government programs?

Diagnosis: Scam (Episode #2004)

A recent survey found that 1 in 5 Americans aged 71 and older have been taken in some kind of financial con and about half of respondents said they had experienced an attempted fraud such as being pitched foreign lottery tickets or unsuitable investment. Now a coalition of financial and medical professionals is teaming up to try to protect people vulnerable to exploitation. Doctors in 22 states are becoming the front line in assessing who has been stung by a scam and who may be vulnerable. It's an attempt to thwart a problem that causes$2.6 billion in financial losses a year.
