ABSTRACT
The article discusses the problems nations face in funding retirement pensions for their workers and differentiates between defined-benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) plans. With DB plans, the corporation is largely responsible for paying off a retirement income. In a DC plan, the worker and sometimes the company set aside money for retirement. The article highlights the Netherlands' more DC-like plan in which investment risks are shared by all members of a pension fund.
