The rusty years: sixteen over eighty
The phrase 'rusty years' refers to the period when people reach the status of 65-and-above and lose their ability to contribute to society mentally and physically. Although some elderly persons still retain a clear mind, they are prevented from doing any meaningful work because of physical disabilities. However, some lose mental lucidity and lose control over their thought processes. The implications of having the latter kind of aged population in society are discussed.
