Poverty, Immigration, and Aging in the United States and California
March 20, 1997, Alumni House, UC Berkeley
sponsored by the Robert D. Burch Center for Tax Policy and Public Finance
Center on the Economics and Demography of Aging, UC Berkeley
The changing composition of the U.S. population is affecting fiscal policy in a number of important ways. This conference will consider three aspects of changing demography that are particularly relevant: the characteristics of those living in poverty, the size and composition of the immigrant population, and the growing share of the elderly among U.S. residents. On each of these topics, speakers will focus on the implications for fiscal policy at the federal level and in California, where these issues are especially pertinent.
Lessons from Economic Research

Prof. Alan Auerbach, Director of the Burch Center, invited eight papers by some of the nation's most prominent public economists, designed to highlight the current state of our knowledge in particular areas and to identify directions for future research. The conference was free and open to the public.
