This roundtable on “The Demographic Dilemma” by Booz & Co.’s magazine isn’t a game changer by any means. However, it brought to light the informational challenge as Ms. Wang insisted on it: what are the actual measures of the “impact” of aging, what should we be looking at? Without information that leads to intelligence and then action, it’s just an empty debate. Our main point is that this informational dilemma occurs in plenty of other fields – climate change, perhaps? – and that we must always be mindful of the fact that sometimes there’s simply not enough information to draw insightful, actionable conclusions.
