Social security programs and retirement around the world fiscal implications of reform ( Book )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 676 libraries worldwide
The future of Social Security is troubled, both in the United States and in most other developed countries with aging populations. As improvements in health care and changes in life styles enable retirees to live longer than ever before, the stress on national budgets will increase substantially. In Social Security Programs and Retirement around the World, Jonathan Gruber, David A. Wise, and experts in many countries examine the consequences of reforming retirement benefits in a dozen nations. Drawing on the work of an international group of noted economists, the editors argue that social secur.
The problems of disadvantaged youth an economic perspective ( Book )
9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 562 libraries worldwide
One of the most important public policy issues in the United States is how to improve the life prospects of disadvantaged youth who, in their formative years, face low-quality school systems, poor access to health care, and high-crime environments. The Problems of Disadvantaged Youth includes a broad range of research examining various aspects of disadvantage, and ways of increasing the ability of low-income youths to improve their circumstances later in life. Taking an empirical economics perspective, the nine essays in this volume assess the causal impacts of disadvantage on youth outcomes.
Social security programs and retirement around the world the relationship to youth employment ( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 511 libraries worldwide
Many countries have social security systems that are currently financially unsustainable. Economists and policy makers have long studied this problem and identified two key causes. First, as declining birth rates raise the share of older persons in the population, the ratio of retirees to benefits-paying employees increases. Second, as falling mortality rates increase lifespans, retirees receive benefits for longer than in the past. Further exacerbating the situation, the provisions of social security programs often provide strong incentives to leave the labor force. Social Security Programs an.
Social security and retirement around the world ( Book )
12 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 483 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.
Risky behavior among youths : an economic analysis ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 412 libraries worldwide
Every day young people engage in risky behaviors that affect not only their immediate well-being but their long-term health and safety. These well-honed essays apply diverse economic analyses to a wide range of unsafe activities, including teen drinking and driving, smoking, drug use, unprotected sex, and criminal activity. Economic principles are further applied to mental health and performance issues such as teenage depression, suicide, nutritional disorders, and high school dropout rates. Together, the essays yield notable findings: price and regulatory incentives are critical determinants.

Government transfers to older persons in Canada are one of the largest and fastest growing components of the government budget. I provide an overview of the interaction between these transfer programs and retirement behavior. I begin by documenting historical trends in labor force participation and program receipt, and contemporaneous patterns of work and income receipt for the current cohort of older persons. I then present an overview of the structure of this system of Canadian transfer programs. Finally, I present results of a simulation model which measures the implicit tax/subsidy rate on work after age 55 through this system. I find that workers, there are modest taxes on work through age 64, that rise to fairly high levels thereafter. But these taxes are substantially lower for single workers, since they do not have wives eligible for means-tested transfers, and for workers with substantial other sources of income is not at all eligible for means-tested transfers.
