Securing Employer-Based Pensions: An International Perspective

Zvi Bodie, Olivia S. Mitchell, and John A. Turner, Editors
As the world’s population ages, millions will reach for their pensions as the mainstay of their retirement income. This book explores the need for increased pension security in retirement systems of developed and developing nations, and shows that sensible tax, insurance, and funding policies, as well as sound investment management and accounting oversight, are central to building and maintaining a successful pension system. How these factors interact is traced across a variety of public and private systems. The book also explores options across cultures and ways to secure retirement income in the new global economic order.
