Looks at the explosive growth that will occur in the retirement-age population over the next 30 years. Describes the factors driving this growth, explores some of the historic social and economic changes of the baby boom generation, and discusses the implications of these changes not only for federal programs such as Social Security, but also for the State of California, which faces more daunting service-provision challenges than the rest of the nation.
