Sickness and the Labour Market
Link to article:
Number in series: 2
This paper makes proposals for the reform of policies aimed at providing support for those who are unable fully to support themselves with income from labour market participation (or other private sources) and also for the provision of insurance against loss of income as a consequence of sickness. The proposals are not fully worked out (particularly in the case of permanent disability), but hinge on the idea now familiar to economists that contracts can be structured in such a way as to encourage truthful revelation of privately-held information, such as the state of one’s health.
