Optimal Health and Retirement Policies amid Population Aging
The publication provides an analytical framework for researchers to examine health care management in the 21st century. The report focuses on two main issues: financing the rising demand for healthcare in aging societies and investing in appropriate medical technology. The authors argue that expanding government health budgets will lead to higher social returns in the production of health. The authors suggest countries with aging populations should coordinate health and retirement policies to enhance medical technology.
