Pension Preferences and Reform – A Political-Economy Model

  • Oliver Pamp


This dissertation has emphasized two things so far. First, existence and sustainability of a pension system is not merely an economic efficiency question but rather a highly political issue. Theoretical explanations therefore need to explicitly model political factors. Second, any pension reform is a purely redistributional policy shift that entails a different political rationale than Pareto-improving policy changes do.
