Ãœber selbststabilisierende Rentensysteme


  • Axel Börsch-Supan

    () (Munich Center for the Economics of Aging (MEA))


Dieser Beitrag reflektiert über die Suche nach einer „idealen Rentenanpassungsformel“ und anderen Mechanismen der Selbststabilisierung. Er versucht, dieser Suche eine gewisse Systematik zu geben. Nach etwas Theorie lassen wir die verschiedenen in Deutschland angewendeten Rentenformeln kritisch Revue passieren und zeigen auf, wie sie als Kompromisse zwischen einer Leistungs- und einer Beitragszusage interpretiert werden können. Schließlich untersuchen wir die Parallelen und Unterschiede zwischen dem deutschen leistungsorientierten und dem schwedischen beitragsorientierten Rentensystem. Die Parallelen sind größer, als man allgemein erwartet.
