Working longer in the Netherlands
Judith Roosblad from the Council for Work and Revenue makes an evaluation of the situation of older workers on the Dutch labor market. She also analyses the policy initiatives that have thus far been taken. Compared to Belgium, the Netherlands are further in the modernization of the labor market when it comes to facilitating longer careers: less pre-pensions, an active approach to lay-offs, and a more visionary way of looking at the career of the future. Moreover, the Dutch pension system is more adapted to demographic imbalances thanks to an important capitalization component and an increase of the legal pension age.

Grey Gold - How the babyboomers can make eldercare a success story
The debate on ageing has been going on for quite a few years, but nothing has actually been done. The clock keeps ticking… With this book we want to stimulate the reform process, and offer a new reference frame for the debate. All too often the debate is focussed on the costs and burdens. Eldercare is more than retirement homes, homecare and care for the demented. In this book we offer concrete policy proposals on the financing of eldercare, on how the available money is best spent (we strongly believe the elderly are best placed to make such decisions, and not the care facilities), on how we can resolve the personnel shortage, and how we can prepare our houses and neighbourhoods for the 3rd age.
