Description - Behavioral Dimensions of Retirement Economics by Henry Aaron
Deciding when and how to retire are amongst the most important decisions people can make. But do they make sound decisions and plan with foresight? Standard economic analysis says "yes": the essays in this volume raise serious doubts about such a comforting appraisal. The contributors, ranging from economists to psychologists to sociologists, suggest that retirement planning and decisions fall far short of the ideal.
