Declining Trends in the Real Interest Rate and Inflation: The Role of Aging,” by Shigeru Fujita and Ippei Fujiwara (Working Paper 16-29, October 2016, .pdf format, 38p.). Note: Links to the abstract and the full text of the paper available at:

Abstract:

The authors explore a causal link between aging of the labor force and declining trends in the real interest rate and inflation in Japan. They develop a New Keynesian search/matching model that features heterogeneities in age and firm-specific skills. Using the model, they examine the long-run implications of the sharp drop in labor force entry in the 1970s. They show that the changes in the demographic structure induce significant low-frequency movements in per-capita consumption growth and the real interest rate. These changes also lead to similar movements in the inflation rate when the monetary policy follows the standard Taylor rule, failing to recognize the time-varying nature of the natural rate of interest. The model suggests that aging of the labor force accounts for roughly 40% of the declines in the real interest rate observed between the 1980s and 2000s in Japan.
