Barnard's Inn Hall, Gresham College
This roundtable was held to discuss the second in our Finance Shorts series of publications - Con Keating's paper on pensions, published in November 2010. In it, Con considers the future of retirement income provision over the long term, predominantly in the context of the UK. He indicates a number of errors currently being made in the analysis and management of pensions, contributes to the policy debate on some further policy issues and offers several innovations which could enhance the adaptability and resilience of the pension system. The somewhat unconventional view is advanced that pensions, broadly as formerly envisaged, are sustainable over the long-term.
