Reinventing the retirement paradigm by Robert L Clark( Book )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores how rising pension and healthcare costs, along with workforce aging, are affecting pension and retirement planning around the world. Many middle-aged workers now realize that they will have to work longer than intended, as they begin to recognize that their retirement resources will be inadequate to finance retirement consumption. Volatile capital markets, rising medical-care costs, and low saving rates make retirement behavior and policy a moving target. Olivia Mitchell, executive director of The Pension Research Council at Wharton, and Robert L. Clark, Professor of Business Management and Economics at North Carolina State University, explore these themes with colleagues, touching on a diverse set of issues ranging from employment trends to pension accounting and investment, to retirement system overhaul. They illustrate how employers are actively reformulating the meaning of work and retirement, seeking to encourage more people to work longer than ever before in the face of projected labor shortages

The economics of individual and population aging by Robert L Clark( Book )

16 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study aims to identify and describe the principle economic issues associated with individual and population ageing. In addition, the study surveys and assess the existing knowledge - including research by scholars of many countries and different fields in the social sciences - of the economic and social problems associated with ageing. Although the study covers a wide range of issues, it focuses primarily on the economic complexities of individual ageing and the macro-economic problems that arise from age-structure changes in the population. The authors, giving examples from many countries, trace the development of concern for population ageing and examine theoretical concepts and changing demographic conditions. Cross-national econometric studies are cited along with time series and cross-sectional research on individual countries. In assessing the state of the literature on the economic problems of ageing, the authors have attempted to indicate fruitful avenues for further research

Extending work life : employer interests and concerns by Robert L Clark( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aging men and women are increasingly remaining in the labor force. Most often the reason for this is that they need to work additional years in order to be able to support an increasing number of years in retirement. This leaves employers scrambling for ways to adapt to a growing number of retirement-aged workers. Clark and Morrill provide a thorough assessment of the costs and benefits of accommodating later retirement ages, and they describe options employers may use to create some new form of employment contract with aging workers. The most prominent issues employers with aging workers face are declining productivity, rising labor and benefits costs, and a suboptimal age distribution of their workforces. According to the authors, employers could respond to these issues by finding new ways to accommodate older workers with, for instance, phased retirement and return-to-work policies. But the success of such policies also depends on tax policies and whether government-provided retirement benefits could be redesigned to play a role in a newly-defined employment relationship"--Publisher's description
State and local retirement plans in the United States by Robert L Clark( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

State and Local Retirement Plans in the United States explains how economic and political events have shaped the development of pension plans in the last century, and it argues that changes in the structure and generosity of these plans will continue to shape policy and funding in the future. It also brings to bear a new rationale to the policies behind public sector pension plans. The authors use the history of how early public pension plans were established, how they matured and how they have grown in generosity to analyse what changes may be expected in years to come. Unique in its scope, t
Adjusting hours to increase jobs : an analysis of the options by Robert L Clark( Book )

10 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fifteenth special report of the National Commission for Manpower Policy examines the interplay between the forces determining work schedules and the incidence and prevalence of unemployment. In the first chapter the author sets forth the major trends in hours of work and in the changing structure of the labor force that has led increasingly to families in which both spouses hold jobs. Chapter 2 focuses on how firms are likely to respond to changes in the demand for their products, both in periods of expansion and contraction, by altering their employment and hours of scheduling. Chapter 3 discusses existing public policies that influence the employment decisions of firms, including payroll taxes, fringe benefit policies, overtime legislation, and minimum wages. The fourth chapter discusses the potential influence of unemployment insurance, social security, private pension systems, and government fiscal policy on the labor supply. The sixth chapter briefly discusses jobs for the hard to employ labor force. The concluding chapter makes six policy recommendations to decrease the unemployment rate by encouraging a reduction in the hours of work and identifies areas where further research is needed. Cost calculations of reducing work hours and increasing the number of jobs are appended. (EM)
