Comparación internacional de sistemas de previsión social
[International comparison of social security systems]


  • Calabria, Alejandro A.

The pension system is an essential component within social security. Due to several reasons, among which the current international financial crisis and the rapid aging of the population that is happening in many countries outstand, throughout these last few years several reforms have been implemented; such as increases in the retirement age, payment facilities to purchase the missing contributions, changes in the types of regimes, etc.-. In this paper we made a comparison between the pension systems of nine selected countries -seven in Latin America and two in Europe – so as to obtain a global view about which is the current situation, the strengths and opportunities that should be pursued and which are the weaknesses to now confront and the threats that might arise in the medium term.
