Descripción

The baby boom generation's entry into old age has led to an unprecedented increase in the elderly population. The social and economic effects of this shift are significant, and in "Research Findings in the Economics of Aging", a group of leading researchers takes an eclectic view of the subject. Among the broad topics discussed are work and retirement behavior, work disability, and their relationship to the structure of retirement and disability policies. While the choice of when to retire is made by individuals, those decisions are influenced by a set of incentives, including retirement benefits and health care, and this volume includes cross-national analyses of the effects of such programs on those decisions. Furthermore, the volume also offers in-depth analysis of the effects of retirement plans, employer contributions, and housing prices on retirement. It explores well-established relationships among economic circumstances, health, and mortality, as well as the effects of poverty and lower levels of economic development on health and life satisfaction. By combining the micro and the macro, this latest volume continues the tradition of expanding the research agenda both through the questions it asks and the empirical domain it examines.
