In a contribution to this journal, Prof. Jan Kun é discusses whether a fully funded (FF) pension scheme can cope with a demographic shock better than a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) system. He makes ample use of my own contributions on this issue but ignores my criticism of the neoclassical interpretation of FF pension schemes, and especially of the claim that an FF scheme is superior to PAYG in this and other respects. The purpose of this note is to stimulate some response, from Prof. Kun é or others, to my critique of the neoclassical interpretation. The policy implications of this discussion for pension reforms are evident.

Abstract

In a contribution to this journal, Prof. Jan Kun é discusses whether a fully funded (FF) pension scheme can cope with a demographic shock better than a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) system. He makes ample use of my own contributions on this issue but ignores my criticism of the neoclassical interpretation of FF pension schemes, and especially of the claim that an FF scheme is superior to PAYG in this and other respects. The purpose of this note is to stimulate some response, from Prof. Kun é or others, to my critique of the neoclassical interpretation. The policy implications of this discussion for pension reforms are evident.
