With public debt rising so high, how can we meet the fiscal costs of an ageing population?
Public debt and cost of ageing society study
PricewaterhouseCoopers
21 May 2009 United Kingdom Taxation, State Pensions, Regulatory Bodies (excl. tPR)
According to a study by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), the Treasury may need to introduce tax increases and/or public spending cuts in order to bring public debt under control. Assessing the long-term costs to the taxpayer of an ageing population, the study suggests that the average UK household could face a fiscal squeeze of up to around £4,600-£5,300 per annum from 2018 onwards. The study also recommends further policy measures for minimising the fiscal burden for future generations, including more rapid than planned increases in state pension ages after 2020.

The Tortoise and the Hare: A Modern Fable
The Tortoise and the Hare: A Modern Fable
PricewaterhouseCoopers
16 May 2009 United Kingdom Scheme Issues & Trends, Savings, Pensioners & Retirement, Investment - General
Research carried out by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has suggested that private sector workers may receive a 'wealth shock' upon retirement, as the value of their pension could be worth less than half of their public sector counterparts. Illustrating what plausible assumptions may imply, economists at PwC compared a saver from both sectors with similar life histories - both born in 1960, dying in 2040 aged 80, both married with two children and owning two different houses during the course of their lifetime. Due to the nature and pace of their respective pension accumulation, PwC refer to the people in the report as 'the public sector Tortoise' and 'the private sector Hare'.
