Summary of this issue

 Asian emerging-market economies are quickly adopting modern institutions such as a pension system and other social security programs. They face new challenges as their once high economic growth rates are coming down and their societies are aging quickly. The lessons from Japan, which is at the frontier of the global “aging society” trend, should be learnt carefully by those countries. This issue sheds light on questions and problems related to social security.
