Daniel Kahneman, Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Public Affairs at Princeton University, Nobel Laureate in Economics
The Intergenerational Foundation (IF) researches fairness between generations. IF believes that, while increasing longevity is welcome, government policy must be fair to all generations – old, young or those to come.
