Summary of The Effect of Population Aging on Economic Growth, the Labor Force and Productivity
Retiring workers are decreasing the overall productivity of America’s labor pool.
The aging of the US population has critical implications for the American economy. This research study by health care expert Nicole Maestas and economists Kathleen Mullen and David Powell presents evidence that overall productivity is likely to suffer as more and more older workers retire. The report looks into the implications for economic growth of a graying workforce, and it makes a strong case against ageism in employment. getAbstract recommends this insightful and useful analysis to both employers and employees.
In this summary, you will learn
- What implications worker retirements have for the US economy,
- How fewer older people in the labor pool might affect younger workers, and
- What government and businesses can do to counter the negative fallouts.
