Conference Motivation and Overview

For several revision cycles of the United Nations’ global population estimates, the estimated year at which population will peak and then decline has crept closer. In some countries, fertility has fallen faster or stayed lower than previous expectations while in others, it has remained high longer than previous expectations. The COVID pandemic has introduced mortality increases of a magnitude not seen in a century in many nations and overnight altered how we care for young and old persons. Overall, the future of global population change looks to be more volatile than expected. In this context, demography and the generational economy become central to many discussions of economic and social policy and planning. What do we need to know to build sustainable generational economies that meet the needs of all age groups and support global health, wealth, and wellbeing?

For young regions, we need to understand how to capitalize on population change to achieve demographic dividends. For aging regions, we need to examine how longer working lives, lower labor market and care economy gender gaps, or more investment in physical and human capital, may be able to sustain living standards. For all societies, we need to evaluate whether current systems of financial and social support can function as populations change, and what opportunities may arise in adapting to new realities. These are just some of the concerns relevant to building sustainable generational economies.

The 14th Global Meeting on Population and the Generational Economy will provide an opportunity for leading experts and policy makers to present and discuss evidence on how population growth and changing age structures influence macroeconomic performance, gender and generational equity, public finances, and opportunities for meeting sustainable development goals. The National Transfer Accounts (NTA) network welcomes participation from members of its over 80 country research teams and from those in government agencies, international organizations, public and private research institutions, media, and universities. The conference will be held in person at the University Paris Dauphine-PSL, LEDA-DIAL, in Paris, France from February 14-17, 2023.

The first day of the conference will be targeted to a general audience of policy makers, media, researchers, students, and the public. Issues relevant to France, Europe, and immediate neighbors will be highlighted. The subsequent days of paper presentations, workshops, training programs, and discussion groups will be targeted to members or prospective members of the NTA network but anyone interested in economic demography is welcome. Training workshops will be offered each day, including NTA basics and extended topics such as measuring the gendered economy using National Time Transfer Accounts.

This meeting is co-organized by the Paris Dauphine University and by the Center for the Economics and Demography of Aging at the University of California in Berkeley (CEDA).
