Over the next forty years the number of people aged over sixty in the world, many of whom live in developing regions, will grow by 1¼ billion. What will old age be like for them? This book provides an analysis of links between development, population ageing and older people, challenging some widely held misconceptions. It highlights the complexity of international experiences and argues that the effects of population ageing on development are influenced by policy choices. The book recognizes that development is a global process and refers to the experiences of a wide range of countries, including those from the so-called ‘developed world’. It pays particular attention to low- and middle-income countries. It takes a multidisciplinary approach, drawing ideas from sociology, economics, demography and other fields.
