Asia moves to productive longevity - Hustler Daily Thumbs Up - June 18
Hello fellow Encore Hustlers
Here is a link to an article from Nikkei Asian Review about how Asian policymakers are grappling with seismic shifts in their economies due to aging populations, pension funding concerns and shrinking labor forces.
Countries like Singapore, Japan, Korea and Vietnam are actively pursuing "productive longevity" by creating initiatives and policies that promote seniors remaining in the workforce by retraining older workers and partnering with companies to find ways to accommodate an aging labor pool.
I believe these initiatives will be closely monitored by the rest of the world. But until public policy catches up with reality it is up to you to plot your course towards your encore hustle.
