Longevity and Inequality
We live lives of unequal length. This fact is obvious, but its implications for taxes and transfers are anything but. Using recent proposals for "baby bonds" and "basic income" as paradigm cases, Professor Daniel Hemel discusses economic and ethical perspectives on redistribution between short-lived and long-lived individuals. The conclusions have consequences for the design of Social Security old age insurance, retirement savings incentives, capital taxation, insurance regulation, and a range of other areas of law and policy.
Light hors d'oeuvres and beer, wine, and soda will be served.
