Abstract

Older people in affluent societies have been characterized by two mutually incon- sistent stereotypes. On the one hand they have been portrayed as a powerful lobby, growing demographically and able to command major economic and political power. On the other hand, they have been typified as a frail, marginalized group at high risk of poverty and exclusion and, in a political context, largely powerless (Vincent et al. 2017). This contradictory discourse has been reflected in tourism research, although most research focused on older people has extolled their value as an economic market segment.
