Pensions and Productivity
AbstractEmployers typically view their investment in pension plans as a means of providing retirement income for their workers. Economists, on the other hand, view pension programs as a way to increase workplace productivity. Dorsey, Cornwell and Macpherson explore the theoretical and empirical basis for the economists' perspective and, in the process, offer a complete discussion on the productivity theory of pensions.
