People are living longer. By 2030, 15% of the population will be over 60 years old. What will happen in this aging economy? If we are to sustain ourselves financially will we ever have the option to retire and lead the lifestyle we want?

They speak to Dr. George Leeson, co-director at the Oxford Institute for Aging, Ruth Welling an aged-care expert in Australia, Shamsuddin Bardan at Malaysian Employers Foundation (MEF), and two retirees: Mrs Lim and Mr Ong.
