Book Launch Event for “Overtime: America’s Aging Workforce and the Future of Working Longer,” co-edited by Lisa Berkman and Beth Truesdale. Join the editors for a conversation about a challenge that many Americans are facing— and will be confronting— in the years ahead: is a delayed retirement a realistic, practical and tenable option for all of us as we attempt to become better financially prepared for retirement? Policymakers are assuming that working longer is the solution to not being financially ready to retire, but the nearly thirty experts across the fields of economics, sociology, psychology, political science, and epidemiology who collaborated to produce this volume explain why delayed retirement is not an adequate solution for all, especially when you factor in increasing economic and social inequalities, precarious working conditions, family caregiving responsibilities, poor health, and age discrimination.

In-person attendance at the Harvard Pop Center is by invitation only, but the event is open to the public as a webinar via Zoom.
