Grey horizons: who pays for old age in the 21st century?

Authors:
P Johnson

Aust Econ Rev 1996 (3):261-71

"This article challenges pessimistic interpretations of the economic impact of population ageing that have been advanced by the World Bank and others. Common perceptions of an ┬┐old age crisis' are shown to result from a narrow reading of demographic data. Future changes in the age structure of the population will be no greater than those already experienced and accommodated in the last fifty years, and estimates of demographic dependency ratios provide an unreliable basis for future economic projections.

The effect of immigration on residents' incomes in Australia: some issues reconsidered.

Aust Econ Rev 1996 (114):171-88

"This article outlines the standard neoclassical model (SNM) of the impact of immigration on the incomes of the resident (pre-immigration) population. We augment the SNM to allow for foreign ownership of and government equity in the capital stock. Using the expanded model, the sensitivity of residents' incomes to immigration is tested in four scenarios. Read More

Forward planning and stability of the Australian migration program.

Authors:
H Clarke

Aust Econ Rev 1996 (114):155-70

"Should the Australian immigration intake be forward-planned and, if so, should the resulting intake be numerically stable through time? There are sound reasons for anticipating the effects of current intakes on future intakes and for basing current intakes on Australia's long-term national objectives. These policy requirements imply a case for forward planning but not the need for a stable intake. Appropriately designed numerically unstable intakes are preferable to stable intakes because instability, while introducing adjustment costs, avoids more significant losses due to reduced selectivity in the entry mix.

Population ageing and social expenditure in Australia.

Authors:
J Creedy P S Taylor

Aust Econ Rev 1993 Jul-Sep(103):56-68

Questions concerning the impact of demographic aging on the dependency burden in Australia are examined. "This article shows that the social expenditure to GDP ratio is heavily dependent on assumptions made about real spending growth, productivity growth, unemployment and participation rates. It produces a framework that makes the assumptions underlying the projections clear and enables the results of changing the assumptions to be easily compared. Read More

Australia: the coming of age.

Authors:
A C Kelley

Aust Econ Rev 1988 (2):27-44

Current demographic trends in Australia and their implications are assessed. The author concludes that "Australia faces a relatively favourable demographic future: ageing is proceeding at a slower pace here, the pattern of the labour force ageing is conducive to restructuring in the intermediate future, and a well-established immigration policy can be used to accommodate demographics with social and economic goals. The financing of social services for the aged will produce fewer concerns here partly because of less immediate demographic pressures and partly because of the orientation of the age-pension system.
