Pension Reform in the Czech Republic - A Contribution into the Debate
AbstractThe paper is concerned with pension reform in the Czech Republic and abroad. It argues against two opinions: on the one hand, it is not necessary to do anything, and on the other hand, that a mandatory funded system should be implemented. Both approaches are false because of creating overwhelming explicit debts. The author recommends an evolutionary approach based on decreasing PAYG in combination with voluntary savings.
