Abstract

A complexity of a pension reform realization in a country with high level of intergenerational altruism is considered as a reason of a failure of the pension reform in Russia. Differences between intergenerational altruism levels in Russia and more modernized western countries are discussed. Overlapping generations models with two-way intergenerational altruism and pension system are analyzed. Successful transition from pay-as-you go pension system to fully funded one is shown to be possible in a modernized society with low level of intergenerational altruism and stable economy. But, even in that case the issue of the transition costs, their volume and distribution remains essential.
