Show Summary Details


This chapter explores the commonalities between pension systems from a global perspective. It is argued that the future of pensions in Western economies is bound up with finance regulation and the process of global financial integration. Fulfilling the promise of globalisation for the future incomes of retirees is essential to any comprehensive nation-state policy that seeks to provide pension security in the 21st century.
