Editorial Reviews

Journal of Pension Economics and Finance
Highly recommended reading for practicing pension policy advisers and afficionados around the world.
Zvi Bodi
This book is a good piece of applied economic analysis. There is not a single equation in the book and it hardly uses any technical jargon. I recommend it to anyone with an interest in this area, especially to policymakers.
