In most developed countries, the age distribution of the population is shifting rapidly towards the elderly. If transfers and the tax schedule are unchanged, future generations will then have to bear an increased charge and, consequently, they could be deprived. Dans la plupart des pays développés, un vieillissement démographique important s’annonce. À politique économique inchangée, ce vieillissement générera un accroissement important des charges supportées par les individus jeunes et actifs, présents et à venir, et donc une détérioration de la situation des générations futures. Dans ce débat, la comptabilité générationnelle d’Auerbach et al. (1991, 1994) et Kotlikoff (1992) occupe une place prépondérante. Elle permet, en effet, de comparer le bilan fiscal moyen des générations à venir avec la charge supportée par les générations actuelles.
