The Youth labor market problem : its nature, causes, and consequences by Richard B Freeman( Book )
18 editions published between 1982 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 731 libraries worldwide
This volume brings together a massive body of much-needed research information on a problem of crucial importance to labor economists, policy makers, and society in general: unemployment among the young. The thirteen studies detail the ambiguity and inadequacy of our present standard statistics as applied to youth employment, point out the error in many commonly accepted views, and show that many critically important aspects of this problem are not adequately understood. These studies also supply a significant amount of raw data, furnish a platform for further research and theoretical work in
Aging issues in the United States and Japan ( Book )
21 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 528 libraries worldwide
The population base in both the US and Japan is growing older and, as those populations age, they provoke heretofore unexamined economic consequences. This volume explores those consequences, drawing specific attention to four key areas: incentives for early retirement; savings, wealth, and asset allocation over the life cycle; health care and health care reform; and population projections
Social experimentation by Jerry A Hausman( Book )
16 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 512 libraries worldwide
Since 1970 the United States government has spent over half a billion dollars on social experiments intended to assess the effect of potential tax policies, health insurance plans, housing subsidies, and other programs. Was it worth it? Was anything learned from these experiments that could not have been learned by other, and cheaper, means? Could the experiments have been better designed or analyzed? These are some of the questions addressed by the contributors to this volume, the result of a conference on social experimentation sponsored in 1981 by the National Bureau of Economic Research. T
Pensions, labor, and individual choice by David A Wise( Book )
19 editions published between 1985 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 498 libraries worldwide
In recent years a decline in the labor force participation of older workers has combined with rapid current and projected increases in the number of older Americans, producing major policy debates over looming "crises" in social security and, to a lesser extent, in the private pension system. That private system is playing an increasing role in the support of retired workers and promises to be the subject of increasing scrutiny by economists and policymakers alike. Previous books on private pensions have largely neglected behavioral implications of the features of pension plans. The
Pensions in the U.S. economy by Zvi Bodie( Book )
17 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in English and held by 498 libraries worldwide
Pensions in the U.S. Economy is the fourth in a series on pensions from the National Bureau of Economic Research. For both economists and policymakers, this volume makes a valuable contribution to current research on pensions and the economics of the elderly. The contributors report on retirement saving of individuals and the saving that results from corporate funding of pension plans, and they examine particular aspects of the plans themselves from the employee's point of view. Steven F. Venti and David A. Wise offer a careful analysis of who contributes to IRAs and why. Benjamin M. Friedman
Social security and retirement around the world by Jonathan Gruber( Book )
49 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 489 libraries worldwide
"In nearly every industrialized country, large aging populations and increased life expectancy have placed enormous pressure on social security programs - and, until recently, the pressure has been compounded by a trend toward retirement at an earlier age. With a larger fraction of the population receiving benefits, social security in many countries may soon have to be reformed in order to remain financially viable. This volume offers a cross-country analysis of the effects of disability insurance programs on labor force participation by older workers. Drawing on measures of health that are comparable across countries, it explores how differences in the labor force are determined by disability insurance programs and to what extent reforms are prompted by the circumstances of a country's elderly."
Issues in pension economics by Zvi Bodie( Book )
11 editions published in 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 486 libraries worldwide
In the past several decades, pension plans have become one of the most significant institutional influences on labor and financial markets in the U.S. In an effort to understand the economic effects of this growth, the National Bureau of Economic Research embarked on a major research project in 1980. Issues in Pension Economics, the third in a series of four projected volumes to result from thsi study, covers a broad range of pension issues and utilizes new and richer data sources than have been previously available. The papers in this volume cover such issues as the interaction of pension-fun
Aging in the United States and Japan : economic trends by Yukio Noguchi( Book )
18 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 461 libraries worldwide
Japanese and American economists assess the present economic status of the elderly in the United States and Japan, and consider the impact of an aging population on the economies of the two countries. With essays on labor force participation and retirement, housing equity and the economic status of the elderly, budget implications of an aging population, and financing social security and health care in the 1990s, this volume covers a broad spectrum of issues related to the economics of aging. Among the book's findings are that workers are retiring at an increasingly earlier age in both countri
Public sector payrolls by David A Wise( Book )
17 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in English and held by 407 libraries worldwide
An estimated one out of five employees in this country works for some branch of government. Because policies concerning the compensation of these employees rest on assumptions about the economic dynamics of the public sector, the issue of public sector employment is of vital importance in the analysis of the national economy. In Public Sector Payrolls, leading economists explore the independent and interdependent functioning of the public and private sectors and their effect on the economy as a whole. The volume, developed from a 1984 National Bureau of Economic Research conference, focuses on
Frontiers in the economics of aging by David Wise( Book )
17 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 384 libraries worldwide
As America's population ages, economic research related to the elderly becomes increasingly important to public policy. Frontiers in the Economics in Aging directs attention to four topics: the role of retirement accounts, such as IRAs and 401(k)s in personal saving; the economics of health care; new advances in research methodology; and aging in relation to inequality. Some of the issues analyzed within these topics are the implications of rising personal retirement saving in recent years, how health and health insurance affect labor supply, and the effects of pensions on the distribution of
Perspectives on the economics of aging by David A Wise( Book )
16 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 357 libraries worldwide
This book investigates several important issues in the economics of aging, including the accumulation of wealth and the relationship between health and financial prosperity. Examining the changes in savings behavior and investment priorities in the United States over the past few decades, contributors to the volume point to a dramatic shift from employer-managed, defined benefit pensions to employee-controlled retirement savings plans. Further, the legislative reforms of the 1980s and the booming stock market of the 1990s did their share to influence individual wealth accumulation patterns of A
Advances in the economics of aging by David Wise( Book )
15 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 344 libraries worldwide
Other chapters consider new methodological developments in the modeling of the effects of health and wealth on living arrangement decisions; the degree of substitution between 401(k) plans and other employer-provided retirement saving arrangements; and the extent to which housing wealth is an important determinant of the consumption and saving of the elderly. In addition, two final chapters use innovative simulations that describe the implications of stylized economic models of behavior among the elderly. They examine the potentially complex relationship between health and housing decisions and the role of mobility costs and other economic factors in this relationship; and the degree to which anticipated bequests may reduce the saving of potential recipients. This timely volume will be of interest to anyone concerned with the economics of aging
Labor markets and firm benefit policies in Japan and the United States by Seiritsu Ogura( Book )
12 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 262 libraries worldwide
This volume--the fourth to result from a remarkably productive collaboration between the National Bureau of Economic Research and the Japan Center for Economic Research--presents a selection of thirteen high-caliber papers addressing issues in the employment practices, labor markets, and health, benefit, and pension policies in the United States and Japan. After an opening chapter assessing the recent ascendance of the U.S. economy, papers diverge to tackle a range of specific issues. Focusing less on international comparison than on the assembly of high-quality research, contributors home in on such topics as youth employment and participatory employment in Japan and the organization of health insurance coverage in the U.S. (Midwest)
Developments in the economics of aging ( Book )
11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 249 libraries worldwide
The number of Americans eligible to receive Social Security benefits will increase from forty-five million to nearly eighty million in the next twenty years. Retirement systems must therefore adapt to meet the demands of the largest aging population in our nation's history. In "Developments in the Economics of Aging", David A. Wise and a distinguished group of analysts examine the economic issues that will confront policy makers as they seek to design policies to protect the economic and physical health of these older Americans. The volume looks at such topics as factors influencing work and retirement decisions at older ages, changes in life satisfaction associated with retirement, and the shift in responsibility for managing retirement assets from professional money managers of traditional pension plans to individual account holders of 401(k)s. "Developments in the Economics of Aging" also addresses the complicated relationship between health and economic status, including why health behaviors vary across populations and how socioeconomic measures correlate with health outcomes
Research findings in the economics of aging ( Book )
9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 240 libraries worldwide
"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, disability, and their relationship to the structure of retirement and disability policies." "While choices about when to retire are made by individuals, these 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 these 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 micro and macro evidence, this volume continues a tradition of expanding the research agenda on the economics of aging."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Health at older ages : the causes and consequences of declining disability among the elderly ( Book )
11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 217 libraries worldwide
Americans are living longer--and staying healthier longer--than ever before. Despite the rapid disappearance of pensions and health care benefits for retirees, older people are healthier and better off than they were twenty years ago. In Health at Older Ages, a distinguished team of economists analyzes the foundations of disability decline, quantifies this phenomenon in economic terms, and proposes what might be done to accelerate future improvements in the health of our most elderly populations. This breakthrough volume argues that educational attainment, high socioeconomic status, an older ret
