Biography

Laurence J. Kotlikoff is professor of economics at Boston University, research associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research, fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, fellow of the Econometric Society, and president of Economic Security Planning, Inc., a company specializing in financial planning software. Professor Kotlikoff received his B.A. in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania in 1973 and his Ph.D. in Economics from Harvard University in 1977.

From 1977 through 1983 Dr. Kotlikoff served on the faculties the University of California, Los Angeles, and Yale University. During 1981-82 Professor Kotlikoff was a senior economist with the President's Council of Economic Advisers.

Laurence Kotlikoff has served as a consultant to: the International Monetary Fund; the World Bank; the Harvard Institute for International Development; the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development; the Swedish and Norwegian Ministries of Finance; the Banks of Italy, Japan, and England; the governments of Russia, Bolivia, and Bulgaria; the Treasury of New Zealand; the U.S. Departments of Education and Labor; the Joint Committee on Taxation; the Commonwealth of Massachusetts; the American Council of Life Insurance; Merrill Lynch; Fidelity Investments; AT&T, and other major U.S. corporations.

Professor Kotlikoff has provided expert testimony on numerous occasions to committees of Congress including the Senate Finance Committee, the House Ways and Means Committee, and the Joint Economic Committee. Professor Kotlikoff is author or co-author of 11 books and hundreds of professional journal articles. Professor Kotlikoff publishes extensively in newspapers, and magazines on issues of deficits, generational accounting, the tax structure, social security, Medicare, health reform, pensions, saving, insurance, and personal finance.

His most recent book, co-authored with Scott Burns, is entitled The Coming Generational Storm (MIT Press, April 1, 2005). In 2030 there will be twice as many retirees as there are today but only 18 percent more workers. According to Laurence Kotlikoff and Scott Burns, if our government continues on the course it has set, we'll see skyrocketing tax rates, drastically lower retirement and health benefits, high inflation, a rapidly depreciating dollar, unemployment, and political instability. Dr. Kotlikoff proposes bold new policies, including meaningful reforms of Social Security and Medicare, which are simple, straightforward, and geared to attract support from both political parties.
