That we all live longer is perhaps one of the greatest achievements of human progress. Yet increasing numbers of older people across the globe are having a huge impact on the structure of populations, offering both challenges and opportunities for the future. "Ageing and Development" is an authoritative analysis of the social and economic implications of this trend. Can we provide enough pensions for old people to live comfortably? How can old people be empowered to play a more positive role in society? What will the role of grandparents be in the emerging new social structures? What are the implications for health services? How can the very old be cared for? Providing a wealth of statistical and quantitative evidence and compiled by leading economists working at the forefront of this area, the book ranges from the developed to the developing world. This is destined to become a definitive guide to the impact of ageing.
