Working Your Retirement
Are you a Baby Boomer in transition, or know someone who is?

Do you expect to continue working at least part of your ‘retirement years?’‘ Life After Age 50’ requires as much thought, preparation, and planning as when we chose our first careers growing up.  You must now pay attention to generating finances for an extended life span, as well as address the issues of quality, vitality, and the reinvention of your life.
And with the current lifespans of women averaging 87 years and men 82 years, the choices we make now could affect us for 15-30 or more years.

Join us at www.workingyourretirement.com as we explore the challenges of working during our retirement years.

Decomposing the decline in the US participation rate for ageing | Bill Mitchell – billy blog

Decomposing the decline in the US participation rate for ageing | Bill Mitchell – billy blog | Working Your Retirement | Scoop.it

"Labour force participation rates are falling around the world signalling the slack employment growth that has accompanied the aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis. It is clear that many workers are opting to stop searching for work while there are not enough jobs to go around. As a result, national statistics offices classify these workers as not being in the labour force, which had had the effect of attenuating the official estimates of unemployment and unemployment rates. These discouraged workers are considered to be hidden unemployment. But the participation rates are also influenced by compositional shifts (changing shares) of the different demographic age groups in the working age population. In most nations, the population is shifting towards older workers who have lower participation rates. Thus some of the decline in the total participation rate could simply being an averaging issue – more workers are the average who have a lower participation rate. This blog investigates that issue for the US after noting yesterday that there has been a massive decline in the participation over the course of the downturn there. But we also note that the aggregate participation rate has been in decline since the beginning of this century so there is probably more than cyclical events implicated."
