Addresses an area of social policy that is relatively new and thus under-developed in the relevant literature. It covers all pension arrangements from a multi-disciplinary perspective, rather than from economic analysis. Several published works do deal explicitly with privately delivered compulsory pensions, but that literature is incomplete.

Reviews

"On the basis of this study, the authors offer a number of structural suggestions aimed to overcome the limitations of mandatory retirement-income programs ... a robust call for a more value-free and closer look at this form of social security structure ..." – Professor John Gal, Hebrew University, Jerusalem
