How will the aging population affect our society?

(上記TOPIC、英語で意見を論理的に述べる技術とトレーニング第7章より引用)

Essay

 I think the aging population will affect our society in three bad ways.
 Firstly, as the number of elderly people is increasing, it will be more and more difficult to maintain the health insurance system. Since often many people have to rely on medical care as they grow old, the aging society will impose a heavier burden of medical care on the government and consequently, it will have devastating effect on Japan’s economy.
 Secondly, the aging population causes problems surrounding pension. As the number of elderly people increases, it is being more and more difficult for the government to keep paying elderly people enough money to make ends meet. Moreover, it is putting a heavier burden of pension premium on young people as our society is aging. These things are putting many people in a financial predicament.
 Finally, the aging population aggravates the attrition of nursing workforce. The shortage of nurses is a worldwide phenomenon and as the number of senior people increases, there will be a greater demand for nurses.
 As I mentioned, I think the aging population will affect our society in the aforementioned three bad ways.

メモ

トピックは、高齢化する人口は社会にどう影響するのか?です。
これも、前回のトピックに似ていますが、内容は少し変えてあります。
高齢化問題のトピックが出たら
1 国民健康保険問題
2 年金問題
3 看護師不足
4 労働人口の不足
がキーアイディアとして使えると思います。
この4つのことを覚えておくと、かなり楽に本番でもエッセイをかけると思います。
