NBER Working Paper No. 13476
---- Acknowledgements ----
This paper was presented at the NBER conference on the economics of aging held at The Boulders, Carefree, Arizona, May 10-13, 2007. The author would like to thank Gopi Shah Goda and Matthew Gunn for discussing these matters with me and helping with the analysis. Also, he would like to thank Erzo Luttmer for his insightful discussion of the paper at the Boulders conference and the other participants in the conference for their ideas and reactions. Victor Fuchs, my long time colleague and friend, was on this tack long before me. The remaining flaws in the logic are all mine.
