I read an interesting “framing paper” written by two learned scholars from Brookings Institution and Kellogg School of Management. The question they addressed revolved around the change in what they called the “retirement paradigm”. I thought you might like to read their paper. They discuss “the risk faced by retirees and offer tractable solutions to improve the American retirement.” One suggestion they make are “policies that can help expand the market and encourage, or nudge, people towards buying annuities.” Their rationale behind this ‘nudge’ is worth reading.
