Some argue that the human population must grow as a vital input for
economic prosperity. Much media attention has been paid to aging and the
adverse impact that lower fertility might have on the U.S. economy. Less attention has been paid to the benefits of low fertility and the factors that can mitigate the economic challenges of an aging population.
To address this oversight, Population Connection will host a symposium engaging opinion leaders in the fields of business, economics, demography, and aging on discussions of policies that can facilitate a healthy, thriving economy in an era of small families and an aging population. Specifically, we will examine this question:
"In light of the unprecedented and inevitable demographic transformation underway, which will result in an older population with fewer workers to support young and elderly dependents, how can the health of the American economy be preserved?"
