Macroeconomics Working Papers from East Asian Bureau of Economic Research

Abstract: Japan's population ageing is unprecedented in modern industrial economies. An ageing population in Japan requires policy measures to encourage lifelong social and economic participation in order to counteract a shrinking workforce and productivity declines. This paper suggests several policy tools, including pension reforms and retirement norms, that could be used to build a 'lifelong active society'.
