The Chair “Transitions démographiques, Transitions économiques” (TDTE) is calling for papers for its upcoming international conference "Ageing and Economic Growth"

The TDTE of the Fondation du Risque – Institut Louis Bachelier is organizing an international conference in July

Mainstream analysis often views seniors as a burden for public finance and the healthcare system and tehrefore it may seem paradoxical to link aging and growth. Furthermore, elderly people are supposedly not directly participating in the creation of value.

In practice, aging which is a global phenomenon, requires to rethink and adapt the economic model at a fast pace.

The Chair Transitions démographiques, Transitions économiques proposes to tackle this important issue July 12th, in Paris, by organising an international conference.

The topic is key and at the top of the political agenda in every country. It requires rapid adaptation in regulation, fiscal, social, prevention and saving policies.

Abstracts and papers must be submitted in English or French but presentations may be done in researcher’s native language.

DEADLINE: MAY 22nd, 2017

Papers have to be submitted at the following adress: francois-xavier.albouy@tdte.fr
