Pension Reform

A Short Guide

Nicholas Barr and Peter Diamond

This book is an abridgement of Barr and Diamond's Reforming Pensions: Principles and Policy Choices (OUP, 2008). It begins with the introduction to the earlier book, including the concluding chapters to the sections on principles and on policy choices, and the concluding policy chapter to the book. It presents material from some of the boxes of the longer book and summarizes the Chile and China chapters into a section of five pages. While the longer book remains as a definitive and detailed analysis of pension reform, this new, shorter tome conveys the message and conclusions to policy makers, journalists writing for the general public, and students being introduced to social security and other pension policy.
