Economic diversity and informed old age social policy

Sociological Practice

Author: Longino, C. F. Jr., Bradsher, J. E.
Type: Journal Article
Year: 1993


The aging policy debate concerning the economic status of the elderly in the U.S. has tended to focus on the disadvantaged; it is informed by a relatively selective view of the financial resources of older persons. The result has been policy that is vulnerable to the market attention given to the advantaged elderly by business as the economic status of the elderly improves. Sociological practitioners whose work focuses on the elderly can consider this policy problem & address the needs of the elderly on both ends of the economic spectrum.
