Abstract

[fre] Cet article défend l'idée que le relèvement de l'âge de la retraite est une mesure à la fois indispensable pour assurer la viabilité des systèmes de retraite, et équitable du point de vue des travailleurs les moins qualifiés. Il montre aussi que l'impopularité d'une telle mesure vient d'une mauvaise compréhension des alternatives qui sont offertes aux travailleurs électeurs. . Classification JEL : D3, H55, J26 [eng] Increasing the retirement age : a needed and equitable reform . This paper argues that increasing the retirement age is a policy that is both needed for the financial viability of social security system and equitable from the viewpoint of low productivity workers. It also shows that the political unpopularity of such a reform comes from a deep misunderstanding as to the actual alternatives that society faces. . JEL classification : D3, H55, J26
