Abstract

A secure and adequate pension system is central to establishing a welfare state. Given that, this book aims to document a set of diverse public policy issues on the financial consumers’ standpoint that are observed in different countries. In this introductory chapter, we attempt to summarize those policy issues that emerged from the survey of the countries included with respect to each of the three dimensions—adequacy, coverage, and sustainability. We hope that, from a financial consumer perspective, reading this book will help individuals to be aware of the functioning of the pension system and to develop reasonable expectations about their generosity and eventually to adjust their current saving behaviors to plan for a secure and comfortable retirement. At the same time, policymakers can benefit from reading by learning from the different countries’ experiences and from the analysis of different available approaches to face different challenges.
