      Generational (Un)Fairness: the Causes, Consequences and Policy Implications of the Demographical Deficit
    • Type: Lecture
    • Lecturer(s): Hans-Werner Sinn, President of the Ifo Institute
    • Topic: Germany is ageing faster than almost all other countries in the world and has fewer new-borns in relation to its population than almost any other developed country on the planet. The long-term implications of these facts are dramatic. The babyboomers, now in their late forties, will retire in fifteen to twenty years from now, only to find that they didn’t have enough children to fund their pensions. These babyboomers will also approach their banks and life insurance companies to obtain the money that they invested. These institutions will, in turn, demand that their debtors pay up; but will the latter be solvent? In his public lecture Prof. Hans-Werner Sinn will discuss where this situation may lead us and what can be done about it. The lecture will be given in German.

      Ifo Conference on "Migration and the Welfare State: Why is America Different from Europe?"
    • Type: Ifo Conference
    • Topic: On 12th December 2014, the Ifo Institute will hold a conference in Munich entitled “Migration and the Welfare State: Why is America Different from Europe?” The conference will focus on how key differences in the fundamentals between the U.S. and the EU – in particular, the degree of coordination among the union member states and the aging of the population – contribute a great deal to our understanding of observed policy differences between these two otherwise similar unions, such as in particular, the generosity of the welfare state and the skill composition of migration.
