Raising the retirement age in the Russian Federation: the demographic conditions and macro-economic consequences


  • Soloviev, Arkadiy

    () (Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA))


The problem of raising the retirement age in our country is discussed from the first steps of market reforms, that is a quarter of a century, and without any visible achievements. At the same time, all civilized countries have already developed a clear program of action to address this problem, albeit with different social and economic consequences: some have raised the retirement age "shock" methods for one or two years, the other stretched out this process for decades, others refused age insurance from the regulator of pension rights. In the current socio-economic conditions, the problem of raising the retirement age in Russia was especially acute.
