Pensions in Development
Challenging conventional approaches to the delivery of sustainable social protection to the elderly in developing countries (DCs) and assessing the implications therein, this volume discusses the appropriateness of the public management of funded systems in DCs with relatively large formal sectors. The combination of social assistance approaches to social protection for the elderly facilitates the formation of an original and unbiased 'pensions in development' approach. Arguing for expeditious implementation of non-contributory tax (or aid) financed universal old age 'pensions' provision in all DCs and advocating inclusivity and flexibility, the book provides an invaluable treatment of a growing issue in world development.
