World population in 2050: assessing the projections: discussion

Joel Cohen was asked by the conference organizers to focus a critical eye on demographic projections and to give special attention to the outlook for the elderly and for total dependency ratios.

Health financing: challenges and opportunities, coverage and cost

This policy panel will present and debate proposals for the next steps in reforming the U.S. health care system. Which challenge deserves the highest priority – providing universal access; instituting better measures of quality and outcomes and better management systems; or reining in costs? How should these challenges be addressed? What keeps us from "having it all"?

How would the proposed reforms tackle the underlying issue and help us maintain a ...
