Journal of Economic Literature This book brings a new perspective on the pension-planning process and challenges the standard model of behavior and by doing so it should inspire further research. It provides a comprehensive analysis, although the conclusions from the chapters on the functioning of markets are less clear. The findings raise important questions for the design of pension plans and also gives insights to effective ways of reaching participants through information and advisors. The
book should be interesting reading to anyone interested in the field of pensions.
