Effects of increasing life expectancy on economic growth

  • Willemijn Brus Willemijn Brus

In the past decades, life expectancies in both developing as developed countries have increased tremendously and are expected to keep on increasing in the coming decades. How will this impact our economy? Using panel data and an endogenous growth model, I will investigate the relation between life expectancy and economic growth. I will focus on the Dutch economy but also use data on Sweden, Japan and the United states. In addition I will analyze the role of fertility rates in this process.
