[Opinion] UK: Increasing the state pension age to 75 is a terrible, divisive idea

Submitted by dfabbri on Thu, 08/22/2019 - 09:29

newstatesman (20.08.2019) A simplistic plan to save money would bring hardship to those least able to cope. t is rare that I see a proposal as potentially damaging as the recommendation, just published by the Centre for Social Justice, to dramatically increase the state pension age – to 70 by 2028 and then to 75 a few years later. This flawed policy thinking suggests little understanding of the role and impact of state pensions and the differentials within our society. It must be dismissed immediately before it is adopted by politicians looking for seemingly easy benefits.

The Real Story of Brazil’s Pension Reform

Submitted by dfabbri on Mon, 07/15/2019 - 10:24

The Americas Quarterly (11.07.2019)9  the constitutional amendment to the second and final vote at the Lower House has left many analysts scratching their heads. How is it that a controversial and usually unpopular reform everywhere in the world wound up with significant support both in the Brazilian Congress and among the population at large, including by stirring street demonstrations in its favor? There are a few competing theories out there, but I posit that the Brazilian outcome was mainly the result of political dysfunction and extreme polarization within society.
