The EC population grew by 17 per cent during 1960-90 but will fall by 2 per cent by 2025. The dramatic growth in the number of Europe's pensioners and the rapid aging of its working population may call for active policies to improve the quantity or quality of the labor force. In this volume, demographers and labor economists investigate these options by comparing recent demographic and labor market developments in Western and Eastern Europe with those in the United States and Japan.

From reviews of the hardback: ' ... an interesting book, which provides a useful and thought-provoking introduction to this topic for academics and for those involved in policy making related to labour markets.' Burlington Magazine From reviews of the hardback: 'Overall, this volume makes a significant contribution within its field.' Ageing Society
