Chapter 1 contextualizes the study of older people’s interest organisations within the evolving politics of old age. It explores the evolving relationship between old age, the welfare state and the economy and the national and international promotion of older people’s interest organisations. It outlines the relationship between age-based social policy and economics, demographic forecasts, transnational organisations, globalisation and ideological debates surrounding the equity of specific age-based benefits.
