Latvia has undergone major economic and social change since the early 1990s. Despite an exceptionally deep recession following the global financial crisis, impressive economic growth over the past two decades has narrowed income and productivity gaps relative to comparator countries in the OECD. But Latvians report low degrees of life satisfaction, very large numbers of Latvians have left the country, and growth has not been inclusive. A volatile economy and very large income disparities create pressing needs for more effective social and labour-market policies. The government’s reform programme rightly acknowledges inequality as a key challenge. However, without sustained policy efforts and adequate resources, there is a risk that productivity and income growth could remain below potential and social cohesion could be further weakened by high or rising inequality.
Ce volume de Panorama des pensions, le dixième de cette série, passe en revue les réformes de pensions entreprises dans les pays de l’OCDE et du G20 depuis deux ans.

Un vaste arsenal d’indicateurs des politiques publiques menées en la matière ainsi qu’une description des régimes sont proposés pour l’ensemble des pays de l’OCDE et du G20.
