Demographic forces are set to shape the future of our economy. For many advanced as well as middle income countries, population ageing will pose a significant economic problem if it results in an increasing proportion of people out of work relative to those in work. But measures can be taken to help reduce the economic impact of ageing. This includes encouraging and supporting those over the age of 65 to continue working, and more controversially perhaps, increasing net migration. To help understand the extent to which both measures can mitigate against the economic effect of ageing we have prepared the following slide pack which outlines a number of plausible scenarios. We aim to expand and develop this analysis going forward as well as potentially applying it to countries other than the UK.
