Summary
"Wealth, Work, and Health takes as its inspiration the illustrious career of F. Thomas Juster, former director of the institute for Social Research, University of Michigan, who devoted forty years to the question of how to measure behavior by asking people questions about the objective and subjective circumstances of their lives. Essays in the volume address advances in measurement as well as disciplinary attitudes toward various forms of measurement - for example, the resistance of economics to qualitative measurements. Specific topics include measurement of expenditures and wealth; lifetime earnings, saving choices, and wealth at retirement; inheritances and bequests; the impact of education and heart attack on smoking cessation among older adults; and intergenerational transfers. Crossing many disciplinary lines, this volume should be of interest to economists, especially those interested in health, as well as sociologists and demographers."--BOOK JACKET
