The Youth labor market problem : its nature, causes, and consequences by Richard B Freeman( )

18 editions published between 1982 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,255 WorldCat member 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

Perspectives on the economics of aging by David A Wise( )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,974 WorldCat member 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

Public sector payrolls by David A Wise( )

17 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and held by 1,946 WorldCat member 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

Aging in the United States and Japan : economic trends by Yukio Noguchi( )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 1,923 WorldCat member 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."--BOOK JACKET. "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 countries. In addition, as the populations age, baby boomers in the United States will face diminishing financial resources as the ratio of retirees to workers sharply increases."--BOOK JACKET. "The result of a joint venture between the National Bureau of Economic Research and the Japan Center for Economic Research, this book complements Housing Markets in the United States and Japan (1994) by integrating research on housing markets with economic issues of the aged in the United States and Japan."--Jacket
Social security and retirement around the world by Jonathan Gruber( )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 1,900 WorldCat member 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
Frontiers in the economics of aging by David A Wise( )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 1,892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frontiers in the Economics of Aging directs attention to important issues by addressing 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. In addition to this book's appeal for specialists and microeconomists, it offers immediately practical ideas and methods for shaping public policy
Advances in the economics of aging by David A Wise( )

16 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 1,873 WorldCat member 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

Topics in the economics of aging by David A Wise( )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 1,755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1986, the National Bureau of Economic Research initiated a research project on the economics of aging under the direction of David A. Wise. The goal of the program is to further our understanding of both the determinants of the economic well-being and health of the elderly, and the consequences for the elderly and for the larger society of an increasingly older population. This third volume to result from the project contains nine essays addressing new issues, some of international scope, as well as research that continues work introduced in the previous volumes. Topics include retirement and saving for retirement; living arrangements and family support of the elderly; the aged in developing countries, including Thailand and Cote d'Ivoire; social security reform, with an analysis of the Japanese system; and the relation between the duration of nursing home stays and the source of payment for care. Each paper is accompanied by critical commentary. Robin L. Lumsdaine, James H. Stock, and David A. Wise find that although complex models are better predictors of actual retirement behavior, the most complex does not provide significantly more information. In a paper offering startling evidence likely to be of wide interest, Thomas E. MaCurdy and John B. Shoven report that the long-term rate of return on stocks is higher than that on bonds but, despite this difference in returns, fewer than twenty percent of TIAA-CREF participants choose to put more than half their retirement savings into stocks. Axel Borsch-Supan, Vassilis Hajivassiliou, Laurence J. Kotlikoff, and John N. Morris develop a model of living arrangements that promises easier implementation than past models, and confirm that increasing age and decreasing functional ability are the most important factors influencing the decision to enter a nursing home. Borsch-Supan, Jagadeesh Gokhale, Kotlikoff, and Morris consider the time that children spend with their parents, concluding that this time is determined primarily by demographic factors, with economic factors such as income and wealth playing an insignificant role. Using data from the Retirement History Survey, Michael D. Hurd argues that wealth, excluding housing, declines about three percent a year during retirement; average consumption expenditures also decrease by two to four percent a year, findings consistent with the life-cycle theory. Angus Deaton and Christina H. Paxson consider aging issues in less developed countries, finding that older people in Thailand and Cote d'Ivoire tend to live with younger relatives in multigenerational households and that economic status is less variable over the life cycle in these countries. The pay-as-you-go Japanese social security system is examined by Tatsuo Hatta and Noriyoshi Oguchi, as are the implications of changing from the current system to one that is actuarially fair. Alan M. Garber and Thomas E. MaCurdy explore the relation between the duration of nursing home stays and the source of payment for nursing home care. They conclude that the incentive effects of the subsidies of nursing home care may play an important role in what type of nursing home care is most often used. Finally, transitions in and out of nursing homes are considered by Edward C. Norton, who analyzes data from an experiment that tested the effects of performance-based reimbursement on the quality and cost of nursing home care
Labor markets and firm benefit policies in Japan and the United States by Seiritsu Ogura( )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 1,731 WorldCat member 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)

Annotation
Developments in the economics of aging( )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Developments in the Economics of Aging, the authors examine the economic issues that will confront policy makers as they seek to design policies to protect the economic and physical health of 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."--Jacket
Health at older ages : the causes and consequences of declining disability among the elderly( )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Americans are living longer-and staying healthier longer than ever before, despite the rapid disappearance of traditional pensions and health care benefits for retirees. In Health at Older Ages, a distinguished team of economists analyzesthe foundations of disability decline, quantifiesthis phenomenon in economicterms, 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 retirement age, and accessible medical care have improved the health and quality of life of seniors. Along the way, it outlines the economic benefits of disability decline, such as an increased rate of seniors in the workplace, relief for the healthcare system and caregiving families, and reduced medical expenses for the elderly themselves. Health at Older Ages will be an essential contribution to the debate about meeting the medical needs of an aging nation."--BOOK JACKET
Aging issues in the United States and Japan by Seiritsu Ogura( )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 1,644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The population base in both the United States and Japan is growing older and, as those populations age, they provoke heretofore unexamined economic consequences. This cutting-edge, comparative volume, the third in the joint series offered by the National Bureau of Economic Research and the Japan Center for Economic Research, 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. Given the undeniable global importance of the Japanese and U.S. economies, these innovative essays shed welcome new light on the complex correlations between aging and economic behavior. This insightful work not only deepens our understanding of the Japanese and American economic landscapes but, through careful examination of the comparative social and economic data, clarifies the complex relation between aging societies, public policies, and economic outcomes
