No 911:
Faut-il attribuer le revenu de solidarité active ŕ 18 ans ?

Philippe Mongin ()

Abstract: In 2009, France will replace its income maintenance scheme, "revenu minimum d'insertion", by a new one, revenu de solidarité active, which will improve the beneficiaries'incentives to work. While some have claimed that the reform should lower the current age limit to get the benefit, i.e., 25 years, except for a parent, the law has not changed it. This note states the pros and cons of putting a 18 years age limit and eventually concludes against it. On this specific issue, the cautious conservatism of the reform – one of its an overall features – appears to be supported by theoretical reasoning.
