The weight of demographics in history3 The links between demographics and the economy, and the way in which economists have been tackling the subject for the past two centuries are decisive, even if the results are not definitive and have been the subject of much debate. In fact, a consideration of the role of populations in human history, a delicate subject and a minefield since it is conducive to digression, is nevertheless essential if we are to imagine our future. Everything has been said on this subject, all of the arguments have long been discussed and all the truths and counter-truths have been evoked, since behind these words about populations there lie the profiles of domination, slavery or integration, migration, respect or contempt, the ownership of land and its riches, in a word; war or peace.

Let us very briefly survey this eternal discussion about people, their migrations and where they choose to settle. Two words have faced off against each other during the course of the past twenty centuries with an almost mechanical regularity – domination, assimilation and once again domination – without any The Curse of Ageing 33 justification other than the power that can be exerted.

Yet without such transfers of expenditure could families bear the cost of an ageing population? In east Asia and in Thailand, net family support for the aged is important. In India and south-east Asia, on the other hand, net family payment transfers are not directed at the ageing population. The economic consequences of population ageing in the countries of Asia thus depend on which model has been adopted, whether or not they are based on that of Japan.
