Public Pensions and Growth
AbstractThis paper studies the short- and long-run effects of pay-as-you-go financed public pensions on productivity growth and discusses the possibility of a Pareto-improving reform. It shows that a reduction of those intergenerational transfers that are inherent in the leads to a permanent increase in productivity growth, a Pareto-improvement does not result. Yet, there is scope for a Pareto-improving public pension reform. Such a reform implies distributing public pension revenues in the form of savings subsidies rather that as lump-sum pension benefits.
