New Titles on Aging from Edward Elgar Publishing

Aging, Economic Growth, And Old-Age Security In Asia

Edited by Donghyun Park, Principal Economist, Economics and Research Department, Asian Development Bank (ADB), Philippines, Sang-Hyop Lee, Professor of Economics, University of Hawaii at Manoa, Hawaii, US, and Adjunct Fellow, East-West Center, Hawaii, US and Andrew Mason, Professor of Economics, University of Hawaii at Manoa, Hawaii, US, and Senior Fellow, East-West Center, Hawaii, US

Population aging is perhaps the single biggest economic and social obstacle confronting Asia’s future. The region-wide demographic transition towards an older population is fundamentally reshaping the demographic landscape, and is giving rise to two key socio-economic challenges. This timely book provides an in-depth analysis of these challenges and presents concrete policy options for tackling them.

First, the expert contributors argue, Asia must find ways to sustain rapid economic growth in the face of less favorable demographics, which implies slower growth of the workforce. Second, they contend, Asia must find ways to deliver affordable, adequate, and sustainable old-age economic security for its growing elderly population. Underpinned by rigorous analysis, a wide range of concrete policy options for sustaining economic growth while delivering economic security for the elderly are then presented. These include Asia-wide policy options – relevant to the entire region – such as building up strong national pension systems, while other policy options are more relevant to sub-groups of countries.

This stimulating and informative book will be of great interest to academics, students, and researchers with an interest in Asian studies, economics generally, and, more specifically, public sector economics.
