Quelles options pour réduire la dépendance à la croissance du système de retraite français ?

The French pension system has been intensively reformed over the last decades and these reforms are expected to have very siginificant financial impacts. Yet two problems remain. The first one is the need of simplifying a system that is still complex and inhomogenous. The second one is that these reforms do not manage adequately the economic and demographic uncertainties to which the system is exposed. Its sensitivity to economic growth assumptions has been even reinforced by the move to price indexation mechanisms that took place in the late 1980s. This paper explores solutions to this latter issue with the Pensipp microsimulation model, considering three categories of new reforms: two structural reforms (notional accounts or a generalized points system) and one parametric scenario limited to rationalizing current indexation rules. Classification JEL : H2, H3, J2.
