Dr Jo Grady from the School of Management discusses issues surrounding the age of retirement

Dr Jo Grady (pictured) from the School of Management has written an article about the rising cost of living in proportion to high unemployment rates and later retirement ages.

She says: "Delaying retirement and prolonging working will not provide a long term solution to this ongoing crisis. Nor will telling people that saving for an income in retirement is their personal responsibility, something which the state cannot and will not help them with. Ideology, by its very nature, can be divisive."
