An attempt to unravel the complexities of pension policy in the UK, including financial, fiscal, labour-market and income-distribution analyses of the retirement-income system. This book, drawing on five years’ IFS research, was widely praised. A Financial Times editorial observed that ‘The IFS’s pioneering attempt to quantify the different returns to pensioners is welcome’. The Independent reported that ‘This book challenges the common assumption that personal pension plans are inherently more risky than occupational or state provision’.
