About the Book

Japan, a country where population decline is progressing and the number of workers is decreasing. While the fiscal deficit continues to expand, rural regions are in a crisis of disappearance. Isn’t the decline of the nation already inevitable? Versus such preconceptions, economics which has struggled with population issues over many years responds “No!” Innovation holds the key to economic growth, and the fact that Japan is one of the world’s leading longevity societies poses an opportunity. This book sweeps away the “population decline pessimism” that has spread throughout Japan and approaches the real issues of the Japanese economy.

Review

"The influence of declining and ageing populations is a worldwide concern, one in which Japan has led but now many countries, most notably Germany, Italy, Russia, and soon China, are destined to follow. The world has much to learn from Japan's experience and from Professor Yoshikawa's very thoughtful and insightful examination of the relationship between such demographic trends and economoic prosperity."
