|Abstract:||The phenomenon known as population aging is caused by a combination of low fertility and increased life expectancy. The result is a shift from a population structure in which there are many young people who can support the old to one with a higher number of elderly. There are several implications; for example, how demographic changes alter tax based public sector programs such as pensions and universal health care. Lastly, the policy approaches to addressing this issue vary between accommodating the problem and dealing with the changing demographic issue.|
