The Economics of Aging: A Guide for Independent Study.
The major portion of this publication contains a bibliography of resources which college students can utilize in an independent study of the economic problems of aging. The first two pages of the publication suggest student projects. For example, it is suggested that students might make a thorough study of retirement planning, do research on the housing situation of the elderly, or examine the programs of their state and local governments pertaining to the aged. The bibliography that follows cites books, journals, newsletters, monographs, special reports, directories, and a few select journal articles. Also included is a list of both public and private agencies and organizations with various kinds of programs for the elderly. The appendix contains a paper entitled "The Problems of the Older Worker: Factors That Affect Employment Status." (Author/ RM)
