Asia is greying. In some parts of Asia, this is occurring at an alarmingly rapid rate. Within a few decades, these countries will have the same proportion of old people in their midst as many developed countries have attained over the 150 years or more. While some Asian countries have become rich before they have become old, others will become old before they become rich. The economic, social and political consequences of rapid ageing in these countries is a matter of concern for all.This book examines the causes and consequences of rapid ageing in Asian countries, using the case of Singapore to illustrate many of the issues involved. Key features include: Detailed analysis of Singapore#s Central Provident Fund(CPF) which considers whether the CPF, on its own, will be able to cater adequately for the financial needs of senior Singaporeans Examination of alternative approaches to help improve the Singapore model Discussion of the tragic phenomenon of elderly female suicide, of which Singapore has one of the highest rates in the world. Who would be interested in this book? University students Policy makers in the public and private sectors, who are concerned with the economics of ageing in Asian societies Anyone over the age of 50.
