AARPMore than 37 million Americans are over the age of 65. And as the baby boomers begin to retire, that number is going to get bigger... a lot bigger. In fact, the there are some 75 million boomers, the oldest of whom are just beginning to retire. Economists say that demographic shift portends a whole host of challenges on the horizon. We'll talk with the leaders of the national and statewide AARP about the hurdles facing those who have or are about to retire. Also, former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich is speaking at Oberlin College Wednesday night. The author of Supercapitalism joins us to talk about the challenges facing the nation's next president, not least of which are the demographic challenges mentioned above. You're invited to join us. The conversation starts at 9 a.m. on 90.3.
