Muir (business law, University of Michigan) and Turner (Pension Policy Center) present papers from the 2010 conference of the European Network for Research on Supplementary Pensions, held at the Economic Policy Institute in Washington, DC, in September 2010. International contributors are academics, practitioners, and researchers in disciplines such as pension policy, social science, economics, accounting, law, and finance. They imagine the perfect pension system for the US, eight European countries, and Japan, offering different perspectives on levels of coverage provided, retirement age, and the role of the government and capital markets in providing retirement income. An overview chapter provides a short explanation of each country's current pension system and summarizes the reforms proposed by the author of each country study.
