Private Pensions versus Social Inclusion?

Private Pensions versus Social Inclusion?

Non-State Provision for Citizens at Risk in Europe

Edited by Traute Meyer, Paul Bridgen and Barbara Riedmüller

This rigorous study sheds light on these issues. It assesses the extent to which six European multi-pillar pension regimes are socially inclusive, by micro-simulating retirement income for hypothetical citizens facing typical post-industrial risks. This timely book suggests that non-state provision has significant limitations, yet also identifies the political and institutional conditions under which private pensions are indeed reconcilable with social inclusion.
