Blackburn examines the realities of an aging demographic in the midst of the disintegration, from both a monetary and social obligation perspective, of sound financial conditions for the elderly.

Abstract:  Historian and economist Blackburn examines the serious question of retirement security. He examines the failures of "pension engineering" and how it has led to corporations losing millions of dollars affecting employee savings and how corporations have avoided taxation while giving executives extragant salaries. He looks at alternate means of pension financing including real corporate contributions that would make the future of the ageing population more secure.
