A. “The automatic adjustment of pension expenditures in Spain: an evaluation of the 2013 pension reform,” by Alfonso R. Sanchez (Working Paper 1420, July 2014, .pdf format, 57p.).

Abstract:

This paper simulates the future performance of the Spanish pension system using a large OLG model. We compare the system in place after the 2011 pension reform to that emerging after the latest (2013) institutional changes. In particular, we explore the workings of the new indexing mechanism, linking pension payments to life expectancy and to the system’s aggregate flows of income and expenditure. We consider several alternative eco-demographic environments in our analysis and assess the welfare consequences for the different cohorts affected. Overall, the new automatic adjusting mechanism is broadly successful in its goal of stabilising the financial condition of the system. But the welfare costs imposed on some cohorts (e g. young workers at the beginning of the reform) is very heavy.

B. “From Bismarck to Beveridge: the other pension reform in Spain,” by J. Ignacio Conde-Ruiz and Clara I. Gonzalez (Working Paper 1417, July 2014, .pdf format, 36p.).

Abstract:

Aging is an unstoppable process and it remains a major challenge for the sustainability of the PAYG pension system in most developed countries, including in Spain. Many countries need to introduce reforms of their pension systems in order to control their expenditure, and in some cases this has already begun. However, there are other sorts of changes to certain parameters that are perceived as secondary, e.g. the different path of minimum and maximum pensions, and the upper and lower caps on contributions. This has significant implications for the distributive structure of the social security system that cannot be readily perceived by the population. That is why some economists in Spain refer to it as the “Silent Reform”. The aim of this paper is to analyse the consequences this type of reform would have in Spain; indeed, it is the first paper to actually quantify and evaluate the potential impact it would have on the country. We have used an accounting model with heterogeneous agents and overlapping generations in order to project pension expenditures up until 2070. The results show that this kind of reform could potentially contain future expenditure and could also change the nature of the pension system from a contributory or Bismarckian-type system into an assistential or Beveridgean-type one. This change could have significant consequences as both systems have different objectives. The paper also shows that the institutional characteristics that make this kind of reform in Spain feasible are also present in most developed countries with Bismarckian pension systems. Therefore, we believe that the lessons learned in this paper on this kind of reform could well prove useful to other countries.

Towards more sustainable Community Organisations for Older People,” by Chris Taylor and Dr. Jed Donoghue (Working Paper No. 114, July 2014, .pdf format, 19p.).

Abstract:

Over the last forty years sustainability theory has been developed as a tool for assessing the health and viability of businesses, communities and organisations (McKenzie 2004). This paper will review emerging concepts of sustainability in the context of small community organisations that provide services to older people. It will identify the measurements and indicators that can be used to assess sustainability in this sector. The second part of the paper will consider several case studies of community organisations for older people in Australia and the United Kingdom. The paper will identify sustainability issues that impact on the operational and long term outcomes of these organisations. The final part of the paper will highlight areas of good practice that allow community based organisations to remain sustainable.

The Effects of a Non-Contributory Pension Program on Labor Force Participation: The Case of 70 y Más in Mexico,” by Laura Juarez González and Tobias Pfutze (Working Paper No. 2014-12, June 2014, .pdf format, 53p.).

Abstract:

We estimate the effect of 70 y Mas, an age-conditioned transfer program for individuals age 70 and older in rural Mexico, on the labor force participation of beneficiaries and of younger individuals who live with them. Using data from the 2010 Mexican Census, we exploit the age and locality population thresholds to identify the effects of the program. We find that the program reduces the labor force participation of elderly men, particularly of those who live alone and who are relatively poor, but has a much weaker effect on that of elderly women. The program has no statistically significant effect on the labor force participation of either prime-age men or women who live with potential beneficiaries, and it has a negative and significant effect on the labor force participation of boys age 12 to 17, particularly those in the lowest wealth quintiles, but not on that of same-age girls. These results suggest that the program affects mostly the labor supply of the intended beneficiaries, and that of marginal workers, like adolescent boys.
