Pension wealth gaps in a system with disintegrated retirement arrangements
Roman Raab ()
MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany
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.
