It is true that there are more people getting old.....but there is less money to care for them as production in America is outsourced overseas and made more efficient/replaced by technology....as a result, many elderly will be forced to live at home or with children........and will not be able to afford nursing homes.  As fewer and fewer can afford nursing homes, expect more to go bankrupt.

In Africa, there are more people going hungry everyday.....but there is less and less money to buy higher and higher priced food.....as a result, many people eat less or die of starvation even though demand for good is going up

Your 40 years of experience as an analyst relied on America being the most prosperous country in the Industrial Age....now, welcome to the Digital Age where geography matters little.
