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.

Population Aging in India: Facts, Issues, and Questions,” by Arunika Agarwal, Alyssa Lubet, Elizabeth Mitgang, Sanjay Mohanty, and David E. Bloom (PGDA Working Paper No. 132, 2016, .pdf format, 24p.).

Abstract:

India, one of the world’s two population superpowers, is undergoing unprecedented demographic changes. Increasing longevity and falling fertility have resulted in a dramatic increase in the population of adults aged 60 and up, in both absolute and relative terms. This change presents wide-ranging and complex health, social, and economic challenges, both current and future, to which this diverse and heterogeneous country must rapidly adapt. This chapter first lays out the context, scope, and magnitude of India’s demographic changes. It then details the major challenges these shifts pose in the interconnected areas of health, especially the massive challenges of a growing burden of noncommunicable diseases; gender, particularly the needs and vulnerabilities of an increasingly female older adult population; and income security. This chapter also presents an overview of India’s recent and ongoing initiatives to adapt to population aging and provide support to older adults and their families. It concludes with policy recommendations that may serve as a productive next step forward, keeping in mind the need for urgent and timely action on the part of government, private companies, researchers, and general population.

A. “Demography of Global Aging,” by David E. Bloom, Elizabeth Mitgang, and Benjamin Osher (PGDA Working Paper No. 131, August 2016, .pdf format, 20p.).

Abstract:

Individuals aged 65 years and older currently make up a larger share of the population than ever before, and this group is predicted to continue growing both in absolute terms and relative to the rest of the population. This chapter begins by introducing the facts, figures, and forecasts surrounding the aging of populations across different countries at varying levels of development. In light of these trends, we examine challenges facing graying societies through the lenses of health, economics, and policy development. The chapter concludes with a selection of adaptable strategies that countries might consider to mitigate the strain—and to harness the full potential—of aging populations worldwide.

B. “The Global Demography of Aging. Facts, Explanations, Future,” by David E. Bloom and Dara Lee Luca (PGDA Working Paper No. 130, August 2016, .pdf format, 65p.).

Abstract:

Population ageing is the 21st century’s dominant demographic phenomenon. Declining fertility, increasing longevity, and the progression of large-sized cohorts to the older ages are causing elder shares to rise throughout the world. The phenomenon of population ageing, which is unprecedented in human history, brings with it sweeping changes in population needs and capacities, with potentially significant implications for employment, savings, consumption, economic growth, asset values, and fiscal balance. This chapter provides a broad overview of the global demography of aging. It reviews patterns, trends, and projections involving various indicators of population aging and their demographic antecedents and sequelae. The chapter also reviews theories economists use to explain the behavioral changes driving the most prominent demographic shifts. Finally, it discusses the changing nature of aging, the future of longevity, and associated policy implications, highlighting some key research issues that require further examination.
