Call for papers: Fiscal Studies - Public Financing of Long Term Care
Long-term care programmes have experienced an expansion of government intervention. Population ageing and social change within families (making informal care-giving costly) put significant pressures on government expenditures. A special issue would bring together ideas and empirical evidence to learn more about how to tackle the increasing demand for long-term care programmes; to measure costs and benefits of different interventions; and to assess ahead of time whether the costs are manageable and under control. We expect to attract a set of papers that would shed some light on how to respond to questions of funding, sustainability, quality, equity and choice.
This issue of Fiscal Studies will be edited by Joan Costa-Font (London School of Economics), Eric French (UCL), Edward Norton (University of Michigan) and Luigi Siciliani (University of York).
