Aging and the Macroeconomy:
Long-Term Implications of an Older Population

Requested by Congress in P.L. 111-117, this new report from the National Academies lays out a framework for evaluating the long-run macroeconomic implications of population aging, including trends in retirement ages, capabilities for government to maintain current levels of publicly funded support for the elderly, and levels of personal savings necessary to sustain living standards in retirement.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on September 25, 2012 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
