Growing old without money worries and poverty

Live Long and Master Aging - Episode 79

Money worries in old age are an everyday concern for a huge number of senior citizens around the world.  In the United States, one in seven live in poverty. It is an unacceptable number and Dr. Paulo Narciso, Vice President of Impact Areas for the AARP Foundation, is determined to reduce it.  He and his colleagues are using financial technology to help vulnerable older adults save for unexpected expenses,  and Voice Enabled AI to detect social isolation and improve social connectedness.

Dr. Narciso previously founded CloudHealth Asia and, as a serial entrepreneur, he has led several startup ventures.

In this LLAMA podcast interview with Peter Bowes, Dr. Narciso explains how even the poorest people in society can save for their old age; why unforeseen circumstances sometimes “spiral out of control,” and how Silicon Valley innovations could provide the best answers.
