The Greying of Asia: Causes and Consequences of Rapid Ageing in Asia

封面
Eastern Universities Press, 2003 - 165 頁
"This book examines the causes and consequences of rapid ageing in Asian countries, using the case of Singapore to illustrate many of the issues involved. The centrepiece of this book is a detailed analysis of Singapore's Central Provident Fund (CPF) which considers whether the CPF, on its own, will be able to cater adequately for the financial needs of senior Singaporeans. Alternative approaches are also examined in order to suggest ways in which the Singapore approach to the care of the aged might be improved. Another important chapter deals with the tragic phenomenon of elderly female suicide, of which Singapore has one of the highest rates in the world."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
