By Pauline K. Robinson, Judy Livingston, James E. Birren

The chapters and stories during this book were chosen from displays at a Symposium on "Aging and Technological Advances" held in August, 1983 on the Ethel Percy Andrus Gerontology heart of the college of Southern California. The Symposium used to be made attainable by means of a supply from the NATO specified Programme Panel on Human components, and the help of this application is gratefully said. participants of the Symposium Advisory Board have been James E. Birren, Judy Livingston, Erhard Olbrich, Victor Regnier, Pauline Robinson, Thomas Singleton, Arnold Small, Harvey Sterns, and Alvar Svanborg. Professor Lambros Houssiadas additionally supplied priceless encouragement. Appreciation can be prolonged to the Andrew Norman Institute for complicated research in Gerontology and Geriatrics for help of making plans actions major as much as the Symposium and for help of occasions surrounding the Symposium itself. A beneficiant present from The UPS beginning to the Ethel Percy Andrus Gerontology middle made attainable the compilation, modifying and coaching of this manuscript and helped to aid Symposium ac ti vi ties. We thank David Bergstone and Mary Margaret Ragan who jointly conscientiously and elegantly geared up and conducted the typing of the manuscript.

These divergent age structure changes are further illustrated by the rise in median age in the more developed regions--from 28 to 30 years--in contrast to a slight decline in the less developed countries. However, over the period 1965-75, the old age population in the less developed countries was growing at a higher rate than other population age groups in these nations (United Nations, 1979b, p. 123-7). The continuation of low fertility in the developed countries will generate further population aging as these nations approach stable stationary populations; indeed, some countries actually face the prospects of declining population.

Source: Table 4. seeming contradiction occurs because wage differences at the end of life for members of a cohort are primarily the result of life-cycle investment decisions and do not represent exogenous increases in wages. Anticipated economic growth raises the expected wage profile which life-cycle theories predict will have an income effect, thus lowering lifetime labor supply. For a variety of reasons, much of this reduction in work time comes late in life in the form of earlier retirement.
