I am currently working on public pension policy in China. More generally I am interested in comparative analysis of pension system in different countries, particularly developing countries. Looking to the future, I am interested in the unintended adverse consequences of well intended policies that may have worked well at the outset, but eventually end up having unintended perverse consequences. This is something I am interested in, but I have not yet made that a significant part of my research agenda. I am also interested in and may soon get into research on the pros and cons of privatization of aging related programs such as hospice, assisted living, and nursing home care.
