Le faible taux d'emploi des seniors. Distance à l'entrée dans la vie active ou distance à la retraite ?
In a recent work (Hairault et al., 2006), we claim that the short distance to retirement constitutes one of the main economic mechanisms behind the low employment rate of older workers. As a result, delaying the retirement age could boost employment at the end of the working life. Our view has been challenged by Benallah et al. (2008) who underline that the distance to retirement found in our previous work could actually reflect the distance from entry (experience effect). In this paper, we propose more convincing identification strategies that tend to strengthen our previous results. JEL classification: J20, J26.
