This workshop provides a forum of discussion about the patterns of ageing, culture and comparative development theoretical and of empirical papers is welcome.
The comparative development of countries is the starting point of fascinating intellectual explorations. What are the forces behind differential economic developments? Why have some countries developed so much earlier while others remain trapped in poverty? What are the proximate, what are fundamental causes of long-run economic development? Can differences in culture lead to differential patterns of development across countries? And if so, what are the sources of different cultures?
Moreover, in the face of the challenges posed by individual and population ageing, what is the interplay between ageing and culture? Does ageing affect culture, does aging affect the economy through its effect on culture?
