Abstract

Ten papers provide perspectives from economists concerning population aging, explore the economic causes and consequences of demographic change, and analyze policy responses that have emerged. Papers discuss retirement incentives and labor supply; investing and portfolio allocation for retirement; conflict and cooperation within the family, and between the state and the family, in the provision of old-age security; complex decision making—the roles of cognitive limitations, cognitive decline, and aging; taxation, pensions, and demographic change; social security and public insurance; workplace-linked pensions for an aging demographic; poverty and aging; health and long-term care; and the Health and Retirement Study around the world surveys. Papers in volume 1A also provide perspectives from economists concerning population aging, explore the economic causes and consequences of demographic change, and analyze policy responses that have emerged.
