Consumer Sciences Seminar: Longevity Related Options for Social Security
The Consumer Sciences Seminar is a weekly series that faculty from Ohio State and other universities present the latest research and trends in consumer sciences. Speakers present cutting-edge research on a diverse and wide-ranging set of topics that includes how individuals and couples shop, engage in precautionary financial or health behavior, take risks, interact with firms, and run businesses. Often the research analyzes how particular government policies affect what people choose to do.
On November 30, the Consumer Sciences graduate program invites Kenneth Couch, professor of economics at the University of Connecticut, to discuss "Longevity Related Options for Social Security: A Microsimulation Approach to Retirement Age and Mortality Adjustments."
