The world and the Asia-Pacific region are experiencing unprecedented demographic change with profound implications for national, regional and global economies. To improve the analysis of the economic impact of population change, research teams in more than 90 countries have developed the National Transfer Accounts (NTA) that estimates how people at every stage of life acquire and use economic resources to support themselves, their families, and—through public programs—others in their societies.  Dr. Mason will share key findings about how demographic changes, low fertility, population decline, and aging, will affect regional and global economies.  

Dr. Andrew Mason is Senior Fellow at the East-West Center, Honolulu, Hawaii and Emeritus Professor of Economics, University of Hawaii at Manoa.  He is a member of the Center for the Economics and Demography of Aging (CEDA) at the University of California, Berkeley. Mason co-founded the National Transfer Accounts (www.ntaccounts.org) network, an international effort involving teams from over seventy countries developing and applying a comprehensive approach to measuring and studying the generational economy.  Mason has authored or co-authored 150 journal articles and book chapters and co-authored or co-edited thirty books and monographs including Population Aging and the Generational Economy: A Global Perspective, a finalist for the Paul A. Samuelson Award and selected as an Outstanding Academic Publication by Choice Magazine.  He earned a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Michigan.
