PA 974 Aging and Public Policy

Instructor(s):

This seminar-style course focuses on public policy related to aging and older populations. We will study major social insurance programs as well as trends and policies related to a variety of topics, including health and work at older ages, living arrangements and intergenerational transfers, and the demography of aging. While the course will primarily cover current U.S. policies and trends, we will also discuss some historical aspects and compare to policies and conventions found elsewhere.
