Advances in the Economics of Aging by David A. Wise

Book Description

This volume presents research on issues of importance to the well-being of older persons, including: labour market behaviour, health care, housing and living arrangements, and saving and wealth. Specific topics include the effect of labour market rigidities on the employment of older workers; the effect on retirement of the availability of continuation coverage benefits; and the influence of the prospective payment system (PPS) on rising Medicare costs. Also considered are the effects of health and wealth on living arrangement decisions; the incentive effects of employer-provided pension plans; the degree of substitution between 401(k) plans and other employer-provided retirement saving arrangements; and the extent to which housing wealth determines how much the elderly save and consume.
