On Business Scotland this week Douglas Fraser celebrates his 50th birthday by investigating the business of getting old. He looks at what the future holds for him at the tail end of the post-war baby boom and at how he can expect his spending patterns to change. He looks at the fast-growing power of the grey pound, asking what businesses can do to cash in; and how technology and finance are being lined up to look after him if he gets to the point of entering a care home.
