A Shrinking Society in Japan

Sarah Best

17th May 2021

Here is a fascinating podcast from The New York Times about the ageing population of Japan.

The episode discusses the impact of various economic and social policies that may have contributed to the greying population (their total population is decreasing), and the impact of this on in the longer term.

There is also a discussion about the role of work in Japanese society, as well as the increase of women choosing to work over having a family.

This podcast could be used for a number of areas within the course (Families and Households, Work, Poverty and Welfare and demographics).
