Abstract

This article provides a survey of selected aspects of the relationship between public and private pension provision in European countries in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development and compares this with other regions of the OECD. Population aging has led many OECD countries to undertake a wide range of pension reforms. The overall effect of these reforms has in many cases been to significantly reduce public pension promises. This, in turn, has increased the interest in the role of private pensions, which has expanded significantly in a number of OECD countries. The article discusses the extent to which a number of countries will need to further increase private provision in order to guarantee adequate future retirement incomes.
