|Description:||Conference "Rethinking the Economics of Pensions: Is There a Crisis of Pensions or of Pensions Governance and Regulation?"|
|Location:||London, Royal Statistical Society, United Kingdom|
|Subject:||Is there a pensions crisis? Issues surrounding pensions, in both private and public sectors, raise major policy questions about economic performance and social stability. The pensions sector has been experiencing problems for many years, but we believe it is open to question whether these amount to the kind of existential crisis some are claiming. Despite changes in regulation and governance that have been made in the last decade, problems continue to worsen and there is a need to reconsider. We believe these issues are too far reaching to be left to professionals within the industry and government, but should also be looked at from a broader economic perspective. The conference will bring together papers reflecting new economic thinking in a dialogue between economists and practitioners, from academia, government and industry.
