R.E. Wright, K. Lisenkova, Bjorn Lomborg (Editor)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This book offers a rigorous overview of twenty-three of the world's biggest problems relating to the environment, governance, economics, and health and population. This chapter focuses on population and employment issues and particularly the growing problem of a diminishing group of young workers. Leading economists provide a short survey of the state-of-the-art analysis and sketch out policy solutions for which they provide cost-benefit ratios. A unique feature is the provision of freely downloadable software which allows readers to make their own cost-benefit calculations for spending money to make the world a better place.
