The coming generational storm : what you need to know about America's economic future by Laurence J Kotlikoff ( Book )
21 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Chinese and held by 2,546 libraries worldwide
"In 2030, as 77 million baby boomers hobble into old age, walkers will outnumber strollers; there will be twice as many retirees as there are today but only 18 percent more workers. How will America handle this demographic overload? How will Social Security and Medicare function with fewer working taxpayers to support these programs? According to Laurence Kotlikoff and Scott Burns, if our government continues on the course it has set, we'll see skyrocketing tax rates, drastically lower retirement and health benefits, high inflation, a rapidly depreciating dollar, unemployment, and political instability. The government has lost its compass, say Kotlikoff and Burns, and the current administration is heading straight into the coming generational storm." "But don't panic. To solve a problem you must first understand it. Kotlikoff and Burns take us on a guided tour of our generational imbalance, first introducing us to the baby boomers - their long retirement years and "the protracted delay in their departure to the next world." Then there's the "fiscal child abuse" that will double the taxes paid by the next generation. There's also the "deficit delusion" of the under-reported national debt. And none of this, they say, will be solved by any of the popularly touted remedies: cutting taxes, technological progress, immigration, foreign investment, or the elimination of wasteful government spending." "So how can the United States avoid this demographic/fiscal collision? Kotlikoff and Burns propose bold new policies, including meaningful reforms of Social Security and Medicare. Their proposals are simple, straightforward, and geared to attract support from both political parties. But just in case our elected officials won't take the political risk to chart a new direction, Kotlikoff and Burns also offer a "life jacket"--Guidelines for individuals to protect their financial health and retirement."--Jacket.

What determines savings? The question is timely and important. The U.S. saving rate is less than half of Japan, Germany and other developed countries.

Jimmy Stewart is dead : ending the world's ongoing financial plague with limited purpose banking by Laurence J Kotlikoff ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 457 libraries worldwide
Discover how the global financial plague is poised to return, and what can be done to stop it. This is not your father's financial system. Jimmy Stewart, the trustworthy, honest banker in the movie, "It's a Wonderful Life", is dead. And so is his small-town bank, Bailey Savings & Loan. Instead, we're watching "It's a Horrible Mess" with Wall Street (aka the Vegas Strip) playing ever larger craps with our economy and our tax dollars. This book, written by one of the world's most respected economist, describes in humorous, simple, but also deadly serious terms the big con underlying the big game--the web of interconnected financial, political, and regulatory malfeasance that culminated in financial meltdown and brought us to our economic knees. But is also proposes a solution--Limited Purpose Banking, a straightforward and easily implemented plan to make Wall Street safe for Main Street. Outlines the first and only proposal to fundamentally fix our financial disaster for good. Written by a leading economist, it explains the tenets of the plan, such as the regained government control of the money supply and the new role of insurance companies.
