FY 2013/2014 Research Topic: B-206
Interregional Spillovers of Demographic Changes and Population Aging: Development and Applications of a Multiregional Overlapping Generation Model [I]

Outline

Many developing countries are forecast to face the serious problem of an aging population, while these economies are still underdeveloped and not yet adequately prepared to deal with this problem in terms of institutional reforms such as social security. In considering the issue, this research project presents a series of basic analyses on an international cooperative framework that may offset the negative effects of an aging population, and also enable the enjoyment of benefits from the so-called "demographic dividends" that may exist in developing economies with an abundant working population relative to its volume of dependents. The project uses a multi-region, multi-sector endogenous growth model with overlapping generations in the framework of applied general equilibrium analysis.
