P 5133 年金支給開始年齢の引き上げ

times onine 2010.05.30

The new government has pledged to raise the state pension thresholds. Bad news if you hoped to retire and put your feet up. Good news for the legions who don’t want to quit. Meet the workers who can’t stop – or won’t.

So what does the pensions bill look like? Alarming. According to OECD figures, average spending on public-sector pensions is now the equivalent of 5.7% of GDP — a percentage that could double in some countries by 2050. And if we take into account health expenditure, then the developed world could be spending nearly a quarter of its GDP on pensions and healthcare. No wonder many analysts believe that retirement as we know it is a thing of the past. It may be seen by future generations as merely a blip in terms of social history — an experiment in social welfare and philanthropy that seemed like a good idea at the time.
