Seminar on Economics of Pensions - The seminar will bring a series of topics and papers dealing with them that will cover most issues related to the pension systems characteristics. We will start with a review of basic design issues and discuss different pension systems ability to adjust to parametric changes. Then we will compare parametric reforms of PAYG systems with systemic/multi-pillar reforms. Significant attention will be given to the political economy of pension reforms and to the situation in the transition countries.
