Note Chapter 1. Introduction -- Chapter 2. Macroeconomic Aspects of Ageing and Retirement -- Chapter 3. Ageing and Retirement Trends among College and University Teachers in France -- Chapter 4. Ageing and Retirement Trends among College and University Teachers in India -- Chapter 5: Concluding Remarks
This book explores the universal and highly topical issues of ageing and retirement. It places a particular focus on the macroeconomic aspects of the ageing and retirement of college and university teachers, through a case study of teachers and professors in France and India. While the ageing of the population and the financing of the pension system are notoriously pressing issues in Western nations such as France, it has previously not been acknowledged that these issues are also critical to the development trajectory of emerging countries such as India. The book also highlights the importance of pensions for welfare, well-being and stability in all categories of workers, including workers in the informal sector and private companies devoid of pension schemes, where jobs are largely irregular and temporary in nature. It will be of great interest to researchers in the fields of comparative education, sociology and economics
