Professor Bill Mitchell on full employment and the aging population

August 16, 2012 – Comments (2)

Fantastic talk by Bill Mitchell. The problem with an aging population given the demographics in many developed economies (the Baby Boomer 'hump' in demographic profiles) is that younger workers are coming into the labor force in a much smaller proportion to those leaving the labor force. However, the mainstream debate discussing the options to deal with this problem is always focused on 'fiscal sustainability'. There is absolutely no 'fiscal sustainability' problem in the US, Australia, UK, Canada, Japan, etc. since those governments are sovereign issuers of their own floating exchange rate currencies. This is unlike the EU. Therefore all discussion of the US (or UK, Australia, etc.) going the way of Greece is completely incorrect.  [more]
