Description of the research program
Social differences in life expectancy represent a challenge both for policy makers and for insurance market, because they have a relevant impact on: financial sustainability of pension systems, economic efficiency, social welfare.
The first objective of the project is the introduction of social differentiation of productivity and longevity within a demographic and accounting model of pension expenditure in order to evaluate their effect on financial sustainability of pension system.
At the same time, social differentiation of productivity and longevity has an impact on the efficiency of the whole economic system and on the distribution of welfare among different social groups and different demographic cohorts. Those impacts will be evaluated by the development of a general equilibrium, overlapping generation dynamic model.
The two models will be calibrated by using the same data-base and will work in parallel in order to produce a broader and deeper understanding of economic and social impacts of population ageing.
