The official first day of Symposium was quite a busy and exciting one! The morning started with a keynote address from Ted Fishman, the author of Shock of Gray and China, Inc., How the Rise of the Next Superpower Challenges America and the World. Mr. Fishman spoke about the role of foreign-born labor in the aging workforce. He said that in an aging world there is a dynamic in place that is making us healthier but there are also strains in this process. We haven’t created durable solutions as we live longer. He emphasized that demographics and aging will play a significant role in the coming years and will greatly influence the availability of labor.
