This chapter draws some conclusions about the policies of the institutions that are centrally concerned with transfers between age groups. It also answers the concern expressed by some writers that we cannot properly understand justice among age groups and generations because they are amorphous entities and there are no clear criteria for individuating them.

Keywords: age groups; transfer; institutions; justice
