The IF Intergenerational Unfairness Index: 2013 Edition

This is the first annual sequel to the original edition of the Intergenerational Unfairness Index, IF’s pioneering attempt to measure intergenerational unfairness in the UK. Building on the measures established by the 2012 Edition, this piece of research found that the prospects of young people appear to be worsening across a range of key areas, including government debt, employment and housing costs. While there was some improvement in relation to the size of Britain’s unfunded pension liabilities and a modest decline in the level of CO2 emissions, overall the results showed that Britain still has a long way to go if we are serious about tackling injustice towards younger and future generations.
