 About the Book 

Leading scholars focus on the economics of aging, with a particular emphasis on the economic future of the baby boom generation. Key themes include the influence of early advantages on later-life economic outcomes (the cumulative advantage/cumulative disadvantage hypothesis)- the relationship between inequalities in economic status and inequalities in health status and access to health care- and the consequences of societal choices concerning retirement income systems and policies for financing acute and long-term health care. Contributors include Angela ORand, Edward Wolf, Edward Whitehouse, and James Smith.
