Aging and pension reform: extending the retirement age and human capital formation,” by Edgar Vogel, Alexander Ludwig, and Axel Borsch-Supan (ECB Working Paper No. 1476, September 2012, .pdf format, 56p.).

Abstract:

Projected demographic changes in industrialized countries will reduce the share of the working-age population. Analyses based on standard OLG models predict that these changes will increase the capital-labor ratio. Hence, rates of return to capital decrease and wages increase with adverse welfare consequences for current middle aged asset rich agents. This paper addresses three important adjustments channels to dampen these detrimental effects of demographic change: investing abroad, endogenous human capital formation and increasing the retirement age. Our quantitative finding is that openness has a relatively mild effect. In contrast, endogenous human capital formation in combination with an increase in the retirement age has strong effects. Under these adjustments maximum welfare losses of demographic change for households alive in 2010 are reduced by about 3 percentage points.

Retirement Age across Countries: The Role of Occupations,” by Philip Saure and Hosny Zoabi (Working Paper No. 2012-06, April 2012, .pdf format, 47p.).

Abstract:

Cross-country variation in average retirement age is usually attributed to institutional differences that affect individuals’ incentives to retire. We suggest a different approach. Since workers in different occupations naturally retire at different ages, the composition of occupations within an economy matters for its average retirement age. Using U.S. data we infer the average retirement age by occupation, which we then use to predict the retirement age of 38 countries according to the occupational composition of these countries. Our findings suggest that the differences in occupational composition explain up to 39.2% of the observed cross-country variation in retirement age.
