A Study of Pension System Efficiency In the Presence of Natural Resource Economy
AbstractIn the face of changes in the demographic and economic situation, governments around the world are reviewing the existing models of pension provision with the prospect of reducing the share of the Pay-As-You-Go system and increasing the share the Fully Funded system. However, the country's specialization in natural resources can have an impact not only on economic development, but also on the functioning of the pension system, which makes research topic highly relevant for Russia. In this paper, a model of evaluating the effectiveness of both types of systems using historical macroeconomic data is presented. Calculations for different groups of countries show that in resource dependent countries Pay-As-You-Go system is relatively more effective than Fully Funded.
