The Imaginary Time Bomb diffuses the myth that the aging baby-boomer population is producing a downward economic spiral. Phil Mullan argues that the growing preoccupation with aging has little to do with demography, but is instead used to justify future reductions in the role of government in the economy, and the curbing of the welfare state.
