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. Deux chapitres spéciaux proposent une analyse plus approfondie des pensions du premier pilier et de l’impact des carrières courtes ou interrompues (en raison d’une entrée tardive sur le marché du travail, des soins aux enfants ou du chômage) sur les droits à pension. Un autre chapitre montre également comment les taux de remplacement futurs sont sensibles à tout changement de paramètres. 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.

These and other challenges are discussed in this collection of expert opinions on the social, economic and policy perspectives facing international investors, governments, businesses, and citizens worldwide.
