About this product
- DescriptionWhat role did population change play in East Asia's rapid ecomic development? A reliable answer to the question is important because the extraordinary ecomic record of East Asian countries during their high-growth era (1960-90) is central to current development policy debates. This book argues that previous studies have neglected the fundamental ways in which demographic forces have influenced ecomic growth and regional ecomic integration. Consequently, the significance of East Asia's remarkable decline in childbearing, the diminished rates of population growth, and the accompanying changes in age structure are t fully appreciated by policymakers. The fifteen essays in this volume address two broad sets of issues. First, did rapid demographic change contribute to East Asian ecomic development? Specifically, what aspects of the region's development were influenced by such demographic trends as ecomic growth, inequality, and the ecomic status of women? Second, what was the role of population policy in East Asia? What policies and programs were implemented, and which of them achieved their goals? Were demographic outcomes a product only of the region's rapid ecomic development, or did population policies accelerate the transition to low fertility and slower population growth? These questions are addressed through a detailed examination of the experience between 1960 and 1990 of six East Asian ecomies: Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, and Indonesia. The essays compare the countries' distinctive approaches to population policies and examine the important channels through which population change has affected ecomic development. Among the topics covered are the impact of population on productivity and invation; ecomic structure; saving, investment, and international capital flows; international labor migration; human resource development; distribution of income; and the ecomic status of women.
