Départ à la retraite. Une perspective internationale

  • Alain Jousten

[eng] Important international differences persist with respect to the activity rates and the age of retirement of elderly workers. While some continental European countries face very low activity rates, the same does not hold true for many other developed countries. We illustrate the role of individual incentives in explaining this observed retirement pattern. [fre] Alain Jousten Départ à la retraite. Une perspective internationale. Des différences internationales importantes persistent quant au taux d'activité des travailleurs âgés et à l'âge du départ à la retraite. Tandis que certains pays d'Europe continentale sont caractérisés par des taux d'activité relativement faibles, d'autres pays développés ne connaissent pas cette tendance. Nous illustrons le rôle important joué par les décisions individuelles dans le contexte du départ à la retraite.
