The Youth labor market problem : its nature, causes, and consequences by Richard B Freeman( Book )
13 editions published between 1982 and 2007 in English and held by 729 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
Social experimentation by Jerry A Hausman( Book )
14 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 511 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. The first section of the book looks at four types of experiments and what each accomplished. Frank P. Stafford examines the negative income tax experiments, Dennis J. Aigner considers the experiments with electricity pricing based on time of use, Harvey S. Rosen evaluates housing allowance experiments, and Jeffrey E. Harris reports on health experiments. In the second section, addressing experimental design and analysis, Jerry A. Hausman and David A. Wise highlight the absence of random selection of participants in social experiments, Frederick Mosteller and Milton C. Weinstein look specifically at the design of medical experiments, and Ernst W. Stromsdorfer examines the effects of experiments on policy. Each chapter is followed by the commentary of one or more distinguished economists

Aging in the United States and Japan : economic trends by Yukio Noguchi( Book )
13 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 456 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

Social security and retirement around the world by Jonathan Gruber( Book )
18 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 428 libraries worldwide
"Social Security and Retirement around the World presents comparable descriptive data and analytic calculations for each of the eleven countries discussed. The chapters begin with a description of the historical evolution of labor force participation and then present data on the current age-specific activities and income sources of men and women. Each paper then goes on to describe the institutional features of the country's social security system, highlighting any interactions with other public and private programs that might also influence retirement behavior. At the core of each chapter is a detailed analysis of the retirement incentives inherent in the provisions of that country's retirement income system. Through this process of analysis, the individual studies provide a means of comparing the retirement incentives among the nations."--Jacket
Public sector payrolls by David A Wise( Book )
15 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in English and held by 403 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 A Wise( Book )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 374 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
Inquiries in the economics of aging by David A Wise( Book )
12 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 363 libraries worldwide
Within the next 20 years, an unprecedented proportion of Americans will be over 65. New research in the economics of ageing is an essential element of understanding what the future holds for this ageing population. This text presents both empirical papers that consider questions that are fundamental to public policy and more theoretical contributions that lay groundwork for future research in the economics of ageing
Perspectives on the economics of aging by David A Wise( Book )
13 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 348 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
Advances in the economics of aging by David Wise( Book )
13 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 335 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
Themes in the economics of aging by David A Wise( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 318 libraries worldwide
Analyses in the economics of aging by David A Wise( Book )
14 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 295 libraries worldwide
"Analyses in the Economics of Aging presents a massive amount of new research on several popular and less-examined topics pertaining to the relationship between economics and aging. Among the many themes explored in this volume, considerable attention is given to new research on retirement savings, the cost and efficiency of medical resources, and the predictors of health events." "Carefully compiled and containing some of the most cutting-edge rese arch and analysis available, this volume should be of interest to any specialist or policymaker concerned with ongoing changes in savings and retirement behaviors."--Jacket
Aging issues in the United States and Japan by Seiritsu Ogura( Book )
9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 282 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
Labor markets and firm benefit policies in Japan and the United States by Seiritsu Ogura( Book )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 259 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 )
10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 243 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
Health care issues in the United States and Japan by David A Wise( Book )
13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 238 libraries worldwide
In this book, chapters explore the structural characteristics of the health care systems in the United States and Japan, the economic incentives underlying the systems, and how they operate in practice
Health at older ages : the causes and consequences of declining disability among the elderly by David M Cutler( Book )
9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 215 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
