9780226146096: Discoveries in the Economics of Aging (National Bureau of Economic Research Conference Report)

The oldest members of the Baby-Boomer generation are now crossing the threshold of eligibility for Social Security and Medicare with extensive and significant implications for these programs’ overall spending and fiscal sustainability. Yet the aging of the Baby Boomers is just one part of the rapidly changing landscape of aging in the United States and around the world.

The latest volume in the NBER’s Economics of Aging series, Discoveries in the Economics of Aging assembles incisive analyses of the most recent research in this expanding field of study. A substantive focus of the volume is the well-documented relationship between health and financial well-being, especially as people age. The contributors explore this issue from a variety of perspectives within the context of the changing demographic landscape. The first part of the volume explores recent trends in health measurement, including the use of alternative measurement indices. Later contributions explore, among other topics, alternate determinants of health, including retirement, marital status, and cohabitation with family, and the potential for innovations, interventions, and public policy to improve health and financial well-being.

About the Author:

David A. Wise is John F. Stambaugh Professor of Political Economy at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and area director for Aging and Health Studies at the NBER.

Review:

“This book brilliantly achieves its goal of enhancing our understanding of the issues related to health and ageing in the twenty-first century. The type of research it presents is not only compelling, but also provides useful tools to assess the main challenges that an older population poses with respect to financing retirement and ensuring appropriate health care. I can hardly recommend a better read on a more pressing problem.” (Journal of Pension Economics and Finance 2015-12-30)
