The development of Massachusetts is growing more slowly than the rest of the country and it is growing older faster. As the sizeable Baby Boom generation reaches retirement age, Massachusetts communities will need to rethink how they are going to deal with housing, transportation, and social service needs, as well as how the public sector will be financed. Join Professor Bluestone as he explores the demographic revolution before us and how we can plan for a different – but better – future in the Bay State.
