About this book

Ageing populations are a major consideration for socio-economic development in the early twenty-first century. This demographic change is mainly seen as a threat rather than as an opportunity to improve the quality of human life, especially in Europe, where ageing has resulted in a reduction in economic competitiveness. Economic Foundations for Creative Ageing Policy mixes the silver economy, the creative economy, and the social economy to construct positive solutions for an ageing population. Klimczuk covers theoretical analyses and case study descriptions of good practices to suggest strategies that could be internationally popularized.

Reviews

“It aims to synthesize social construction approaches to aging with those of economics and social gerontology. … The book is intelligently written and contains many thought-provoking tables and diagrams.” (L. Mack, Population and Development Review, Vol. 42 (1), March, 2016)

"After all the complaints that ageing populations will create an economic burden, Klimczuk's concept of creative ageing policy brings fresh air to the discussion. It is time to explore all the resources that ageing people can provide to local and national economies with their consuming, competencies, experiences, and volunteering. Longevity brings new cohorts of active and fit older people seeking meaningful roles for the betterment of the world." - Vappu Taipale, Professor and Honorary President, International Society for Gerontechnology; Chair, Union for Senior Services, Finland

"This book provides a timely discussion of policies to promote the creative, cultural, and social capital of older persons. The originality and significance of the project lie in its discussion of positive solutions, and their implementation, to challenges associated with population ageing." - Steven Prus, Associate Professor, Carleton University, Canada
