No 9294, EcoMod2016 from EcoMod

Abstract: Capture the interactions among pension reform, labor market and inter-generational distribution issues We use an overlapping generation general equilibrium model. The impact on the labor market is addressed on the aggregate level but also y distinguishing different age categories. Results: Increasing the contribution rate is the worst solution in terms of welfare and unemployment, particularly of the youth.Postponing the retirement age is the best option and it does not entail an increase of youth unemployment contrary to the traditional wisdom. The middle-aged are those who benefit the most from the reforms in terms of welfare.
