In this up-to-date and thorough exposition of state pension schemes and the activities of pension funds in Britain, David Blake combines a wealth of institutional detail and an examination of important policy issues to outline an ideal pension scheme that addresses and resolves the problems in the current system. In his analysis, Blake reviews the historical development of pensions, the wide range of pension schemes currently operating in the UK, how they work, and the public policy issues facing them. This integrated analysis of pension schemes and funds provides clear guidelines for the future success of these programs in the UK and will be a valuable resource for business and public economists.
