Ageing Asia: Some New Rules for Public Policy and Corporate Business (Session 1)

Multimedia: Webcast |


Why has Japan's domestic demand been floundering since long before the current financial crisis hit? Why will its projected recovery be slower than even that of the U.S.? Understanding the "Silver Tsunami," or the phenomenon of ageing baby boomers in Japan, helps us understand what is going on in Japan. And the problem is not peculiar to Japan. Similar "tsunamis" will also hit Asian countries including Singapore, China and India in the next one to five decades. Tips on how to survive can be found among best practices in struggling Japanese companies, as well as from the many mistakes made by Japan’s public entities within the last two decades.

This lecture series, based on basic statistics and candid observations of reality, will help audiences foresee the future of their own countries, while enhancing their capability to survive.
