Your Call 021809 How Should We Share Resources Between the Generations?

Is it time to rethink how we share resources between the generations? On the next Your Call we'll discuss intergenerational justice. When the first boomers entered the work force 45 years ago, the elderly were the poorest demographic in the country; as those first boomers hit retirement age, they are among the richest. Medicare, education, environmental policies and social security are all under pressure from the current downturn. What should be weighed in making changes to wealth distribution? How should boomers prepare their businesses and institutions for the next generation? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
