The 50-plus Generation
The health of a society de pends on thehealth of the over-fifties
Knowing that this is the generation that drove the Miracle on the Hangang River, the SMG presents policies to inspire the boomers to design and build their own miracle for a second beginning
As they say, “when an old man dies, a library burns to the ground.” That is how much experience and wisdom one person attains throughout life. If we were to lose such experience and knowledge of the baby boomers who flourished through a dynamic phase of the modern era, it would simply be a sheer loss to our country. […] The 50-plus generation is our backbone, and we cannot afford to have a vulnerable back. When our 50-plus generation is strong, their parents and children will also be strong. This is precisely why 50+ policies concern much more than just the over-fifties. With 50+ programs, the 50-plus generation will be able to explore who they really are, prepare for old age, add new potentials, and rekindle economic vivacity in the city.
