District Dialogues: The Economics of an Aging America

August 9, 2022 @ 6:00 pm 7:30 pm EDT

District Dialogues: The Economics of an Aging America

Join the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond for a District Dialogues forum bringing together leading experts to discuss the economics of aging in America. District Dialogues is a free event, but registration is required. To attend in person, please register by August 2.

Event details

When you attend this session, you’ll learn:

  • How the changing demographic trends of America impact our overall economy
  • How and why to prepare now – no matter what stage of life you’re in – for your own aging
  • What impact today’s aging population has on our workforce
  • How policy can impact the decisions people make as they age, what policies might minimize challenges faced by people as we age and how these policies impact younger generations

Whether you’re Gen Z, a Baby Boomer or somewhere in between, we will approach the topic of aging from every stage of life so you will leave understanding how the aging population directly impacts you, from real estate and work life choices to caregiving and financial decisions.

This event is open to people of all ages interested in the economics of an aging America, including members of the public, educators, school administrators, state and local policymakers, workforce development professionals, and community and business leaders.

Once you register, follow the Richmond Fed on social media to join us in our lead-up discussions related to the economics of aging and share your own thoughts using the #DistrictDialogues hashtag.
