Unexpected longevity, intergenerational policies, and fertility. Article just published in the Journal of Population Economics.

The paper uses an overlapping generations model to show that young agents reduce their fertility when longevity increases because they need to save more for their old age (“life-cycle effect”), and in the unexpected case, they also need to pay taxes to support the impoverished elderly (“policy effect”).
