Population Aging, Fertility and Social Security
This book provides a comprehensive, theory-based analysis of current issues in population economics. It addresses the most important problems caused by demographic changes using the popular overlapping generations growth model by Samuelson and Diamond. Taking into account families' fertility decisions, it examines not only the demographic changes due to longer life expectancy but also the effects of social security policy on demography and labor supply/individual retirement behaviors. Conducting all analyses in a dynamic general equilibrium setting, the book offers a valuable theoretical reference guide in the field of population economics. Akira Yakita is a Professor in the Department of Economics at Nanzan University, Japan. He previously taught at Nagoya City University, The University of Tsukuba, Chukyo University, Mie University and Fukuoka University, and a professor emeritus of Nagoya City University.
