This chapter first discusses some of the reasons why pension systems today rightly look different from systems fifty years ago. It then considers developments in pension systems and their design and economic and political responses to long-term trends. Policy errors are discussed as well. The chapter goes on to offer brief descriptions of a number of pension systems, including those of Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Chile, China, Hungary, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States, to illustrate the wide variety of possible choices.

Keywords:   Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Chile, China, Hungary, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Singapore
