dc.description.abstractThe paper examines the scope for mutually beneficial intergenerational cooperation, andlooks at various attempts to theoretically explain the emergence of norms and institutions thatfacilitate this cooperation. After establishing a normative framework, we examine theproperties of the laissez-faire solution in a pure market economy, and in one wherereproductive decisions and intergenerational transfers are governed by self-enforcing familyconstitutions. We then show that first and second-best policies include a pension and a childbenefit scheme. Finally, we look at the possibility that intergenerational redistribution mightbe supported by either a constitution, or some kind of voting equilibrium.en_US
