Ageism? The glass is always half full

The UK's population is clearly an ageing one, which will within the next ten years or so have a very large percentage of the population over the age of 50.

(Re: Headstart: Careers: Is your certificate a ticket to ride?)

I therefore fail to see how an ageist culture can survive.Who will work to sustain the economy? This is the position facing all of Europe not just the UK.

Who will do the all the work?

Perhaps magazines such as Accountancy Age should be doing more to educate employers about the merits of older accountants rather than constantly being downbeat and gloomy about ageism.

For the first time accountants 45+ years old will be presented with the best opportunities of their careers.

Sorry for not being the typical gloomy Brit.
