Abstract

In his praise of the book, Jerry Green wrote: "Eytan Sheshinski has written the definitive book on the economics of annuities." Indeed, having read this book, Green's praise is a good summary of my overall impression. The analysis is self-contained and rigorous, yet crystal clear and supplemented with simple economic intuition.
