Notes
  • France, Germany and Italy, to take the three largest economies in continental Europe, have large and ailing pay-as-you-go public pension systems, very thin capital markets, and low capital performance. This paper proposes to study these three issues together, taking Germany as an example. Specifically, we argue that pension reform, via a change in portfolio composition of households and a strengthening of corporate governance through institutional inves-tors, can have important beneficial side effects both in terms of capital efficiency. Discussions about pension reform should therefore be broader than the narrow debate on how to diffuse the future financial strain caused by population aging. We suggest that looking at pension reform and capital market problems together sheds additional and new light on the continuing debate about advantages and disadvantages of pay-as-you-go and fully funded pension systems.
