Abstract

The present paper is based on earlier studies by Kifmann (2001 ) and Buslei (2002) and constitutes an evaluation of the effects of subjecting self-employed people to the statutory pay-as-you-go pension system from 2005 onwards by using a computable general equilibrium model with overlapping generations. As opposed to earlier studies, for the first time this study takes into account future demographic developments and higher life expectancy as a function of socio-economic characteristics. Simulations are performed for a small open economy and a closed economy in consideration of adjusted investment cost. In further simulations, the old-age quotient is changed in the period from 2020 to 2030 to reduce the replacement rate to 60%.
