"Recent studies show that almost all industrial countries have experienced dramatic deceases in both fertility and mortality rates. This situation has led to ageing societies with economies that suffer from both a decline in the working population and a rise in the fiscal deficits linked to increased government spending. East Asia exemplifies these trends, and this volume offer an in-depth look at how long-term demographic transitions have taken shape there and how they have affected the community in the region."
