Abstract

The paper examines projections of the fiscal liabilities of public pension programmes in a number of OECD countries. It investigates the reasons why many countries have built up such liabilities in the past and critically appraises the future projections of pension costs. It examines the strengths and weaknesses of four reform options which are currently being discussed and implemented in various countries.
