Abstract

Improvements to the finance of social care will be paid for by a rise in National Insurance contributions. Nicholas Barr (LSE) argues that NI can be the right way to finance this kind of risk, but the government can and should ensure that younger people do not have to shoulder an undue share of the new tax burden.
