This book
argues that the implementation of compulsory, highly regulated, privately
administered, defined contribution pensions facilitates rent-seeking behaviour
on the part of the pension fund administrators and undermines the retirees’
income and well-being. While the book focuses primarily on Chile, its analysis
and conclusions are applicable to several Latin American and Eastern European
countries where privately administered pension systems have been implemented. Chapters evaluate the scholarly literature
and empirical evidence around three aspects of the pension fund industry:
structure, pricing and performance. The authors conclude that state regulation
has facilitated the accumulation of capital in the hands of the pension fund
administrators. They also demonstrate that these systems owe more to the values
and principles of conservative philosophy than to neoliberalism in providing
alternative solutions to the rent-seeking approach to retirement.
