Participation and earnings of older people in Argentina: Nice work if you can get it?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The article explores the potential contribution of better labour market participation among older people in Argentina to address old age poverty and vulnerability. The acute financial crisis in 2001 led to a steep rise in poverty and renewed concerns over the deterioration of old age support. Broadly, two main strategies took shape: to strengthen pension provision for poorer and vulnerable older people, and to improve their labour market participation. Using data from a dedicated survey of older people, the article tests the feasibility and effectiveness of the second strategy through a detailed analysis of the labour market participation and earnings of older people in Argentina. © 2011 Taylor & Francis.
