Australia Institute senior economist Matt Grudnoff comes in to discuss working later in life and why treasurers seem to say it’s going to become more necessary in the future. He busts Josh Frydenburg’s assumptions that our ageing population is an economic timebomb, answers questions about employment opportunities for older people, what will happen if they can’t find a job and what it will take for employers to look at older workers as a more attractive staffing option. And he also predicts how the economy looks for 2020.
