Long description:

Ageing populations pose some of the foremost global challenges of this century. Drawing on an international pool of scholars, this cutting-edge Handbook surveys the micro, macro and institutional aspects of the economics of ageing.


Structured in seven parts, the volume addresses a broad range of themes, including health economics, labour economics, pensions and social security, generational accounting, wealth inequality and regional perspectives. Each chapter combines a succinct overview of the state of current research with a sketch of a promising future research agenda.


This Handbook will be an essential resource for advanced students, researchers and policymakers looking at the economics of ageing across the disciplines of economics, demography, public policy, public health and beyond.

"Pension models provide powerful insights, but policy analysis frequently fails to combine those insights with a wider view ? for example, assessment of pension adequacy needs to take account both of the pension system as a whole and of wider factors such as the existence (or not) of comprehensive insurance covering health and social care. One of the great strengths of this volume is that the 40 chapters the editors have assembled locate discussion in the wider context, including pensions, health, earning opportunities and individual elements such as ageing and personality." ? Nicholas Barr, Professor of Public Economics, London School of Economics, UK


"With insights from leading economists and demographers from around the globe, this Handbook will be an invaluable resource for those seeking up-to-date synthesis of a dazzling array of conceptual and empirical questions about the economics of ageing." ? Karen Eggleston, Director, Asia Health Policy Program, Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center, Stanford University, USA
