Social security is at present the focus of an important economic and political debate. Is the combination of high taxes and high benefits distorting economic incentives? Can the social security systems of the welfare state sustain the increasing share of pensioners in the population? In this volume, a group of prominent economists offer a series of articles that take a look at the future of social security in the 21st Century.
