Publication | December 1999

Developing countries in general and Asia in particular are aging rapidly. As a natural consequence there will have to be significant increases in public social spending.

Pensions are unique financial instruments that aim to deliver affordable, reliable benefits far into the future. Their key feature is that they are long term intergenerational contracts for old age consumption.
