    Abstract

    Ein fiskalischer Vergleich entwickelter Staaten geschieht häufig über jährliche Indikatoren wie etwa den Maastricht-Kriterien Defizit- und Schuldenquote. Um jedoch die Tragfähigkeit einer jeweiligen Fiskalpolitik einschätzen zu können, bedarf es der Erweiterung der Perspektive um langfristige implizite Verpflichtungen, welche hauptsächlich in Sozialversicherungssystemen begründet sind. Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht mit Hilfe von Generationenbilanzen die fiskalische Nachhaltigkeit von acht Staaten (Deutschland, Frankreich, Großbritannien, Norwegen, Österreich, Schweiz, Spanien und die Vereinigten Staaten). Neben einem internationalen Nachhaltigkeitsranking findet sich in dieser Studie auch eine exemplarische Analyse und Bewertung dessen, was in den betrachteten Ländern im Bereich der Alterssicherung auf den Weg gebracht wurde. Dabei zeigt sich, dass der in Deutschland gewählte Weg einer Kombination aus Nachhaltigkeitsfaktor, staatlich geförderter privater Altersvorsorge (Riester-Rente) und Rente mit 67 die Belastungen im internationalen Vergleich ausgewogen verteilt. --
