The Economics of Aging

Myron H. Ross, Editor

This book examines the economic consequences of work disabilities, and public and private interventions that might enable disabled individuals to enter the work force for the first time, remain at work, or return to work.

Three groups of papers are presented. The first group examines ways that labor market changes, policy interventions and individual choices shape the work force. The next analyzes both public and private return to work policies for the work disabled and for those with a severely disabling condition. The final group focuses on the specific needs of the disabled that affect their work force participation, including access to health care, personal assistance and assistive technologies.

"Many chapters offer innovative and undoubtedly controversial policy recommendations, which, if they are not implemented, are likely to be debated for years to come. Given the current public debate, (this) is a timely publication that one hopes will be closely read by policy makers. It should be read by all who are interested in public policy on work disability." –Industrial and Labor Relations Review
