Multi-country research projects that are underway or recently completed include:
The world is experiencing unprecedented demographic change with important economic consequences. This global analysis addresses four dimensions of population--size, growth, age structure and place—drawing on new data about the economic lifecycle in 186 countries. Individual consumption and production by age differ across countries with economic, environmental and health implications that are inextricably linked to population. Population change will reduce global Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth and stress public finances. At the same time, in many parts of the world it will drive improved standards of living and for the world as a whole ameliorate environmental stresses. Concerns about the potential for generational conflict are likely overstated.
