Economic Foundations for Creative Ageing Policy, Volume I: Context and Considerations

This book shows that global population ageing is an opportunity to improve the quality of human life rather than a threat to economic competitiveness and stability. It describes the concept of the creative ageing policy as a mix of the silver economy, the creative economy, and the social and solidarity economy for older people.

Each chapter includes exercises and assignments for both students and those who are likely to apply the presented concepts in practice.
