Comment Neelie (Kroes)
Making speeches talk
[...] By 2050 Europe will have three times as many people over 80. Many more people will live in institutions for elderly care. And many more disabled people will live at home. Overall, the dependency ratio will jump from 4 to 1 today, to 2 to 1. And even by 2020, there will be a shortage of 2 million carers to look after them all.
