    Expenditures on the young are decreasing and those on the elderly are increasing.

    Questions relating to the decisions that may be made in the process of allocation of resources for these competing groups are examined in detail.

    The goal of meeting all individual needs may well require setting « reasonable » limits and fashioning a broader societal perspective.
