Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book is a very good and (for the most part) non-technical discussion of the general issues surrounding pensions. The list of contributors reads like a who's who of pension experts. Schiebert's chapter does a wonderful job of providing insight into the historical context of pensions. The two chapters on comprehensive penions reform allow sharply differing viewpoints to be stated clearly, and they highlight the complexity of the issues." —Thomas Steinmeier, Texas Tech University, Journal of Pension Economics & Finance
