Previdência Pública e Eqüidade Intergeracional


  • Coutinho, Mauricio Chalfin


The paper concerns the intergenerational aspects of the social security, in view of the existence of resource transfers from the general budget to the social security budget and vice-versa. Taking as a point of reference an the economic analysis of social security, based on the public goods theory, the paper concludes that the existence of two distinct social pacts ? concerning the general budget and the social security ? provides an additional perspective to the traditional discussion of intergenerational justice in social security.
