Abstract

The paper inquires into notional defined contribution pension schemes, which retain the pay-as-you-go financing method while adopting the award and indexation formulas typical of funded, defined-contribution systems. It examines the properties of the new arrangement and compares them with those of the traditional defined-benefit pay-as-you-go schemes. Copyright © 2008 The Authors.
