  • Managing risks during working life
  • Managing risks during retirement years
  • The art of choosing
  • Supervision of fully funded pensions: solvency and transparency
  • Risk sharing and distribution among generations: full funding, pay-as-you-go, taxation
  • The labor market
  • Heterogeneity within generations and the position of senior citizens

FURTHER INFORMATION: More information can be found on the Netspar website.
