Aging And Saving In Asia
In this paper, I analyse the impact of population aging on saving in Asia (with emphasis on Japan and China) and obtain the following findings: population aging will lead to declines in household, private, government and national saving rates, but to the extent that population aging is accompanied by absolute declines in population, investment rates will also decline. Moreover, countries always have the option of borrowing from abroad because all countries, even within the Asian region, will presumably not show simultaneous declines in saving. Therefore, the decline in saving caused by population aging will not necessarily spell disaster. Copyright 2010 The Author. Journal compilation 2010 Blackwell Publishing Asia Pty Ltd
