Pension wealth gaps in a system with disintegrated retirement arrangements

Roman Raab ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This paper examines the application of the gap concept to determine pension wealth differentials across different retirement arrangements and over a range of retirement ages. The gap concept allows for comparisons of equality outcomes without having to rely on the optimal savings paradigm. The micro simulation analysis draws a clear picture of inequalities generated by a pension system as opposed to other sources of inequality within the generation in retirement.
