Full text not available from this repository.


This new think piece by Professor John Macnicol of the London School of Economics explores the role of ageism in relation to the employment market. Alongside exploring the history of ageism, Professor Macnicol sets out his views on the reasons for the revival of interest in age discrimination and explores the reasonableness of using age proxies. Professor Macnicol notes that whilst ageism has contributed to labour market problems facing older people, other factors have been more significant. He makes a number of recommendations and highlights the need to find ways to make working more attractive to older people.
