Column: Census Report Brings Good News About Aging

Writing a column for Bloomberg News, Andrew Ferguson hails the good news coming out of the U.S. Census Bureau report on aging. After 20 years of reading "policy weenies" portending national bankruptcy from "the Graying of America, the Aging of the Workforce, the Baby Boom Bust, the Coming Collapse in Unfunded Entitlements," Ferguson hails the picture the Census Bureau presents "of an aging generation that will be working (and paying taxes) longer and placing fewer and less costly demands on the health care and pension systems than we expected."
