Case Studies in Retirement System Reform
Case Studies in Retirement System Reform
World Economic Forum
May 2017 Singapore, Netherlands, Japan, United Kingdom, Denmark, Canada Surpluses and Deficits, Savings, Pension Reform, Pensioners & Retirement, Longevity
The World Economic Forum has published a handbook entitled "Case Studies in Retirement System Reform" which presents 12 case studies on the approaches that governments, pension funds and companies have taken to address the challenges that their own retirement systems face. The report outlines initiatives that have been taken and lessons learned to guide those seeking future pension reforms.

To accompany the handbook, the World Economic Forum has also published a White Paper entitled "We’ll Live to 100 - How Can We Afford It?" which addresses the challenges facing retirement systems, including the impact of ageing societies, and quantifies the size of the savings shortfall. It also provides recommendations for system design and actions for policy-makers to make sure we can adjust to societies in which living to 100 is commonplace and affordable for all.

Danes should be encouraged to carry on working, says OECD
Part of the OECD series on Ageing and Employment Policies
OECD
23 Nov 2005 Denmark Pension Reform, European Union members, Advisers
Denmark should act quickly to make it easier for older workers to remain in the workforce longer, according to a new OECD report. Unless action is taken, Denmark will face a shrinking workforce, a slowdown in economic growth and worsening public finances. The report outlines the main barriers to employment facing older workers, an assessment of the adequacy and effectiveness of existing measures to overcome these barriers and policy recommendations for further action by the Danish government, social partners and older workers themselves.

Pension Arrangements and Retirement Choices in Europe: A Comparison of the British, Danish and German Systems
An exploration of how different state benefit systems affect the labour supply of older workers
Centre for European Policy Studies
Feb 2005 United Kingdom, Denmark, Germany State Pensions, European Union issues
This paper develops a general equilibrium simulation model of a heterogeneous population in which both consumption/saving and labour/leisure choices are endogenous. In broad terms, they find that differences in labour force participation can be accounted for by the differences in benefit structures. These conclusions are not altered when they allow for the effects of poor health at different ages. The UK system is found to be preferable by young persons while the German arrangement is preferred by old and older people (who make up the majority in the simulated population).

Danish Index
Real estate investment returns
Investment Property Databank (IPD)
