Chris started work on this article in the summer of 2012, partially in response to his experiences at a conference on “The Elderly as an Asset” at the Rockefeller Center on Lake Bellagio in the US. His article argues that the human capabilities (human capital) of the elderly in Russia have been improving since a low point in 1995. It contains index measurements of the human capital of the birth cohorts of 1930, 1935, 1940, 1950 and 1960 when they turned (will turn) 60 in 1990, 1995, 2000, 2010 and 2020. CHEMP congratulates Chris on this interesting work.
