Abstract

In recent years, social sciences and disciplines such as public health disclosed versions of Chilean aging as a neutral phenomenon, as a result of the modernization process of the State and health improvements in the country. However, we argue in this essay that aging and aging of the population are eminently political processes, based on the management and calculations made by the neoliberal State on the population. The discussion focuses on how aging and generally ages are tangled and produced by the logic of power, which is nowadays trying to solve the binomial 'old age/expense'.
