Summary:"The Economic Implications of Aging Societies describes current trends in birth rates, longevity, and labor force participation and productivity, the cross-border flow of capital, the globalization of labor markets, the financial viability of social insurance programs, and the ways economic output is shared between working-age and retiree populations. There is no single magic-bullet solution to the demographic shortfalls ahead. Our most effective solution will likely be a multifaceted one: more workers, longer careers, higher productivity, and more global exchange and cooperation. There is no denying that challenges lie ahead, but delaying treatment will likely necessitate even stronger medicine and portend a more dismal prognosis."--BOOK JACKET.
