Population ageing is an important trend which will be experienced
in industrialized countries in the early years of the next century.
This significant book examines aspects of population ageing and
pensions, with an emphasis on the design and use of simple economic
models to focus on particular aspects of a very broad problem. The
analysis of pensions presents many complex problems. A major aim of
this book is to demonstrate how reasonably simple economic models
can be designed and used to shed some light on the issues involved
in population growth and pension provision. The basic analytics of
population growth and pension structure are first explored.
Projections for Australia are examined and used to model ageing and
social expenditure and to estimate the `burden' of aged care on
future workers. The author goes on to investigate pensions and
pension finance, and examines several types of economic model
before turning to the analysis of alternative pension arrangements
using a lifetime simulation model. The results of the study suggest
that both lower contribution rates and a universal pension
encourage a later retirement age. This book will prove invaluable
to students and scholars of public sector economics, welfare
economics, social economics and public finance.
