New book – Economic Foundations for Creative Ageing Policy, Volume II

Andrzej Klimczuk
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.
The second volume of “Economic Foundations for Creative Ageing Policy” focuses on the public policy and management concepts related to the use of the opportunities that are created by population ageing. Klimczuk covers theoretical analyses and case study descriptions of good practices to suggest strategies that could be internationally popularized.
Each chapter includes exercises and assignments for both students and those who are likely to apply the presented concepts in practice.
