21 Sep 2009 United Kingdom State Pensions, NEST/Personal Accounts, Pension Reform
The Centre for Policy Studies (CPS) has published a report entitled "Don't let this crisis go to waste: a simple and affordable way of increasing retirement income" demonstrating that expectations of a comfortable and lengthy retirement funded by the state are out of date.

SAINTs can get Britain saving again
SAINTs can get Britain saving again
Centre for Policy Studies (CPS)
Nov 2005 United Kingdom Taxation, Savings, Pension Reform, Industry Bodies (excl. Regulatory Bodies)
A Centre for Policy Studies (CPS) report argues that public trust in pensions is now so low and the savings crisis so deep, that attempts to reform pensions are unlikely to succeed. In order to reinvigorate personal savings, the author proposes that pensions should be replaced by a Self-Administered Investment Trust (or "SAINT") - a universal savings wrapper that is simple, flexible, agreeable across the political spectrum and easy to understand.

Ending Pensioner Poverty
Proposals to increase the individual Basic State Pension from 77.45 to 120 per week
Centre for Policy Studies (CPS)
Nov 2003 United Kingdom State Pensions
According to the researcher, the British pension system is inadequate: it is bewildering in its complexity, it is expensive and it fails to provide an adequate standard of living for a large proportion of pensioners. This report proposes a number of reforms to the state pension system. The researcher says these fiscally neutral reforms would end the morally unacceptable situation whereby millions of people have to live on less than 100 a week in retirement.
