UK: Over 65s boost economy by £100 million per day
Once pension, health and welfare costs were excluded, 2010 saw those above retirement age in the UK generate £40 billion for the economy, according to a new report. The WRVS age concern charity document, compiled by an independent source, attributes a value to the taxes, spending power, donations and voluntary work which older people contribute. This sum is expected to increase to some £77 billion by 2030.
