Description - Sharing the Wealth by Andrew Mason

This book is concerned with transfers of economic resources between generations. What determines the magnitude and direction of those transfers? What are the respective roles of the family, the private sector, and the government? How do transfers affect demographic behaviour? Inequality? Economic growth? Other aspects of the economy? These issues are addressed in 15 previously unpublished papers by some of the leading experts in the field. The book is intended primarily for a scholarly audience and should be of particular interest to economists, demographers, and other social scientists. It should also be of interest to those concerned with pension reform and other ageing policies.
