The Japan Center for Economic Research and the National Bureau of Economic Research have been engaged in joint projects on the economics of aging and related areas for several years. Two prior conference volumes reporting the results of these studies have been published: Aging in the United States and Japan in 1994, and The Economic Effects of Aging in the United States and Japan in 1997. This volume contains text that was presented in Kyoto, Japan, in May 1997. The contributions are focused on four topics: saving, wealth, and asset allocation over the life cycle; health care and health care reform; incentives for early retirement, as well as labor market incentives over the working life; and population projections. This introductory chapter presents an overview of these contributions.
