Long-term care (LTC) needs are expected to rapidly increase in the next decades, and at the same time, the main provider of LTC, namely the family, is stalling. This calls for more involvement of the state that today covers <20% of these needs and most often in an inconsistent way. Besides the need to help the dependent poor, there is a mounting concern in the middle class that a number of dependent people are incurring costs that could force them to sell all their assets. In this paper, we study the design of a social insurance program that meets this concern. Following Arrow (Am Econ Rev 53:941–973, 1963), we suggest a policy that is characterized by complete insurance above a deductible amount. [less ▲]

L’État-providence n’a jamais été autant décrié qu’aujourd’hui, alors qu’il n’a sans doute jamais été aussi nécessaire. Les critiques qu’il doit essuyer viennent de ceux qui veulent en réduire la voilure comme de ceux qui le trouvent incapable de remplir ses principales missions. Les multiples fractures sociales qui ont conduit une partie de la population à douter des politiques censées la secourir pour finir par basculer dans le vote populiste redonnent toute sa justification à un État-providence plus performant et soucieux de combler le fossé séparant une partie de la population socialement intégrée de celle qui compte les exclus. C’est dans cette perspective que se place cet ouvrage. Il présente d’abord un portrait social des pays européens en mettant l’accent sur la France. Il analyse la performance de leurs États-providence face à des obstacles qui ont pour noms « globalisation » et « individualisme ». Il aborde ensuite les principaux domaines où il peut et doit avoir une action : la santé, l’emploi, la retraite et la famille. Il conclut en proposant un certain nombre de recommandations concrètes.

This paper studies the design of a social long-term care (LTC) insurance when altruism is two-sided. The laissez-faire solution is not efficient, unless there is perfect altruism. Under full information, the first-best can be decentralized by a linear subsidy on informal aid, a linear tax on bequests when the parent is dependent and state specific lump-sum transfers which provide insurance. We also study a second-best scheme comprising a LTC benefit, a payroll tax on children[U+05F3]s earnings and an inheritance tax. This scheme redistributes resources across individuals and between the states of nature and the tax on children[U+05F3]s labor enhances informal care to compensate for the children[U+05F3]s possible less than full altruism. © 2015 University of Venice.

We study the optimal design of a social security system when individuals differ in health status and occupation. Health status is private information but is imperfectly correlated with occupation: individuals in harsh occupations are more likely to be in poor health. We explore the desirability of letting the social security policy differ by occupation and compare the results with those obtained when disability tests are used instead. We show that tagging by occupation is preferable to testing when the audit technology is relatively expensive and/or the proportion of disabled workers differs markedly across occupations. Expected utility differences between occupations could induce workers to switch occupations if they were able to. We explore the implications of imposing equality of expected utility across occupations. © 2015, Springer-Verlag Wien. [less ▲]

The purpose of this note is to analyze the optimal tax and transfer policies that should be conducted in a society where individuals differ according to their productivity and their risk of mortality and dependency. We show that according to the most reasonable estimates of correlation among these three characteristics, an optimal policy should consist of a tax on earning and second period consumption and of a subsidy on long term care spending. Also, the implicit tax on saving is positive. [less ▲]
