Using data from statistical sources and official reports, we propose a critical
approach to aging in Colombia, specifically from the point of view of public policy in progress or
in planning. Our main hypothesis is that these measures refuse comprehensive treatment of the
ageing in terms of needs and rights promoting a pure welfare system which, instead, contributes
to reinforce a collective imagination of a dependent and impoverished old age, with «fatal»
consequences that sustain and reproduce the socioeconomic system
