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.
