[White House Conference on Aging, 1981. Creating an Age Integrated Society: Implications for the Economy. Report and Executive Summary of the Technical Committee.]
Beach, Morrison H.; And Others
This Technical Committee Report presents recommendations and strategies designed to achieve continued economic improvements for the elderly. Four specific recommendations serve as the basis for this report, i.e.,: (1) the United States should expand employment opportunities for the elderly; (2) both government and the private sector should encourage increased personal savings; (3) an increased income transfer program targeted at the poorest elderly is needed to reduce income inadequacy; and (4) national policies should encourage increased domestic investment aimed at improved productivity and economic growth. A picture of future economic conditions, based on current policies and social trends prevails and, developed by Data Resources, Inc. (DRI), provides a baseline against which to measure the impact of new economic strategies recommended by the Committee Report. Extractions and analyses of major DRI findings are presented for the baseline along with four strategy forecasts and the implications for current and future policy action. An executive summary of this report is also included. (NRB)
