Abstract

This article discusses population ageing and its impact on the financing of social security, health and other social services for the Japanese elderly. These lessons include: the importance of avoiding fragmentation and complexity in public programmes; the need to anticipate the possibility of escalating costs and how to deal with this challenge; dealing with non-compliance with the law in mandatory schemes; reducing financial pressure on firms and individuals (especially during times of economic downturn); and anticipating possible service shortages either because of increased demand or because of mal-distribution of facilities and personnel.
