The Power of the Longevity Economy

In this webinar, AARP EVP and COO Scott Frisch details the massive economic importance of those 50 and older, both in terms of their buying power and in terms of their contributions to the workforce – at a time when many insurers are struggling to attract talent. With advertisers focused on younger demographics, it's easy to forget that the 115 million Americans who are 50 and older purchase $8.3 trillion of goods and services each year – which would make them the third-largest economy in the world, behind just the U.S. and China.  In a conversation with ITL Editor-in-Chief Paul Carroll, Frisch explores how to tap into the tremendous power of that group.
