Securing Employer-Based Pensions: An International Perspective


As the world's population ages, millions will rely on their pension plans as the mainstay of retirement income. This book asks whether supply will meet demand in the new economic order. Pension systems in Germany, Japan, Canada, and the U. S. are compared, along with those in many developing nations. This volume is intended for employees and managers, pension policymakers, actuaries and lawyers, and benefits consultants, all of whom are busy changing their pension structures to meet global challenges.

Sensible tax, insurance, and funding policies-as well as investment management and actuarial oversight-are central to building and maintaining a successful public and private pension system. Tracing the interaction of these factors across a variety of environments, Securing Employer-Based Pensions explores the immediate need for increased pension security in retirement systems in both developed and developing nations.
