The Decision to Retire: Some Microeconomic Hints

Author

  • Canegrati, Emanuele

Abstract

This very brief paper aims to provide some little microeconomic hints in order to explain the early retirement of workers. In particular, the hipothesis of quasi-concavity of the utility function, differences in wage rates and in pension benefits are all factors which may contribute to force a worker to retire before he reached the retirement age.
