Introduction

The key question that this book will address is assumptions about existing innovative public policy ideas to construct positive answers for an ageing population.

Andrzej Klimczuk

Chapter 1. Old Age as a Stage in the Life Course and the Life Cycle

This chapter discusses the basic concepts that will form the basis for further construction of the theoretical model of the creative ageing policy. An overview of the basic notions will allow us to avoid ambiguity and to introduce the main assumptions of contemporary social gerontology and human development theories.

Chapter 2. Forms of Older People’s Capital

Old age is often described from the perspective of losses, deficits, and risks. This chapter rejects such a way of thinking. It focuses on the potentials of older adults. The main aim of this chapter is to describe different resources that can be interpreted as positive contributions of older people and the ageing population in society and the economy. Notions of the human capital, the social capital, the cultural capital, and the symbolic capital of older people will be briefly discussed and compared.

Chapter 3. Creativity and Ageing: Concepts and Controversies

This chapter provides a brief and thought-provoking review of concepts associated with the creativity of older adults, changes in creativity with age, and the impact of creativity on health and longevity.

Chapter 4. Mixed Economy and Multisectoral Approach to Population Ageing

This chapter introduces and analyzes the concepts of welfare mix, welfare pluralism, and a mixed economy of welfare in relation to activities for older adults.

Chapter 5. Silver, Creative, and Social Economies as Positive Responses to Population Ageing

This chapter introduces three economic systems related to the ageing population. The silver economy, the creative economy, and the social and solidarity economy, to some extent, correspond to the needs of older people. Moreover, they foster and use the diverse forms of older people’s capital.

Chapter 6. Benefits at the Interface Between Economic Systems

This chapter presents and discusses the possibilities of obtaining various benefits from the increasing integration between the analyzed economic systems.

Conclusion

In the closing remarks, I would like to highlight the core concepts of the theoretical model presented in this book and to point out some potential research directions on ageing in the future. I also would like to suggest some of the challenges, barriers, and recommendations for implementation of the creative ageing policy.

Künstliche Intelligenz und der Faktor Arbeit - Implikationen für Unternehmen und Wirtschaftspolitik

Künstliche Intelligenz und ihre Auswirkung auf den Faktor Arbeit ist zum Modethema in der wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Politikberatung avanciert. Studien, die alarmistisch die baldige Verdrängung eines Großteils konventioneller Jobprofile beschwören, leiden jedoch unter fragwürdiger Datenqualität und Methodik. Die Unternehmensperspektive zeigt, dass der Wandel der Arbeitswelt durch künstliche Intelligenz weitaus langsamer und weniger disruptiv ablaufen wird. Jetzt gratis downloaden!
