Excerpt

This book is based on the 2010 conference of the European Network for Research on Supplementary Pensions (ENRSP), held at the Economic Policy Institute in Washington, D.C., on September 10, 2010. The ENRSP is a research network for independent researchers in the field of private pensions. This conference was the first conference of the network held outside Europe. Financial support for the conference was provided by the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan and IBIS Advisors Co., as well as from funds from the network.

In part because of population aging, many countries are considering reforms of their pension systems. For that reason, the conference addressed the issue of what pension experts in different countries thought would be the ideal pension system for their countries. As discussed in the overview chapter and in the individual country chapters, it is clear that the authors differ as to the role of the government and capital markets in providing retirement income, as well as on issues relating to what age retirement benefits should be available.
