Reading 34: Growing Older by Lester Thuron What are the recommendations about generational equity? - Argues that the aging population over 65 is a new class of people that are getting resources from the government that could have been invested in something else. - Elders have an unstoppable political power because they are a majority of voters. - Targeting low-income elderly families reduce costs and improve economic efficiency (money to those who need it the most). However, this means less political support. - Children need more than elders and only 4,900 dollars are invested a year in < 19 years old in comparison to 28,000 dollars for the elders.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
