Assessing the adequacy of pension systems is very difficult. Suitable indicators, capable of offering a ‘benchmark degree’ of efficient risk diversification against which to compare actual data are simply absent; moreover, they would be difficult to implement – not only because of the mix of insurance and redistributive features that typically characterises pension systems (which requires that other redistributive programmes are included in the assessment), but also because these features are never in a steady state, and the transition costs imposed by reforms would have to be taken into account.
