Vietnam´s elderly population doubled in 2017!

The other side of the coin is that Vietnam’s population will age extremely rapidly. In just 20 years, beginning from 2017, the proportion of Vietnamese over 65 will double from 7% to 14%. (The same pro rata increase took 115 years in France and 45 years in the UK; it will take 26 years in China (2000-2026)). Life expectancy at age 60 is already greater than in other South East Asian countries with higher per capita GDP such as Indonesia and Malaysia. By 2050 a quarter of the population will be over 60, with only two people of working age available to support each elderly person.

The transition from quantity to quality will be hard.  However, these articles get it all wrong. The Vietnamese state will not waste any resources on old people.  Young people will abandon their aging parents who are too expensive and laborious to care for.  It already happened in S. Korea and Japan, societies that in theory value old people.  As sad as it is, when these older folks all die off, these countries will still remain competitive for some more decades.  Moral decadence is the price they choose for prosperity.
