Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 December 2020.
Interests: fiscal sustainability; health economics; economics of ageing; pensions; long-term care
This Special Issue will comprise papers covering a wide range of aspects related to fiscal sustainability. Papers can address fiscal rules, intergenerational fairness, impact of ageing societies, or political and/or politicoeconomical questions concerning fiscal sustainability, and may approach these from a variety of backgrounds such as economics, political science, or sociology. Especially welcome are empirical contributions discussing fiscal sustainability at the federal or other levels, like public pension systems, public health, or long-term care insurance or other subsystems of public social safety nets. This includes studies in specific countries but also international comparisons. Papers selected for this issue may also address methodological development in assessing fiscal sustainability including simulation, generational accounting, econometric, and other modeling approaches.
