Summary
  • "This book is about the demographic and funding crises that threaten Continental European systems of pension and retirement income. The author argues that state-sponsored social security will not deliver promised retirement incomes for the baby-boom generation; European monetary union and the imperatives of global finance have made such promises untenable, thereby undercutting nation-state social solidarity. Globalization has set many challenges for European countries, not least of which is providing pension security for their citizens. At the same time, global finance has opened-up options for corporations and individuals seeking alternatives to the past; but exercising those opportunities will come at a high cost for European original of social justice."
  • "Drawing upon original research, the author considers the dimensions of the pending European retirement income funding crisis, noting the economic and political forces involved in debates over possible solutions; current country-specific models of pensions provision, making the connection between social security and supplementary pensions; the allocation of risks between individuals, markets, and institutions emphasizing the tensions between social solidarity and the market in France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom; and finally, the prospects for a pan-European approach to retirement income provision."--BOOK JACKET
