dc.description.abstractThe world countries are increasingly becoming “gray” societies in which the share of elderly in the population is bigger than the rest. This is argued to has adverse implications on education spending due to generational competition stemming from the selfish behavior of the elderly. This thesis explores ways in which demographic composition affect K-12 education spending in 31 OECD countries by revisiting Poterba’s influential work and using updated data.
