Abstract

In this paper, the major frictions that the twelve countries of the European Community face with regard to elderly care are enumerated and explained. The impact these frictions may have are briefly sketched as well as the type of innovations prompted, in part, by these frictions. Von Hippel's view on the emergence of innovation is being used to point out how Schumpeter's notion of 'creative destruction' can potentially enrich the European domain of public-services planning for the aged in the future.
