Empirical analysis of two decades of pioneering pension and social security reform in Latin America and the Caribbean shows that much has been achieved, but that critical challenges remain. In tackling this unfinished agenda, a great deal can be learned from the reform experience of countries in the region. 'Keeping the Promise,' produced by the chief economist's office for the Latin America and Caribbean region at the World Bank, evaluates policy reforms in 12 countries, points to successes and shortcomings, and proposes priorities and options for future reform.

From the Back Cover:

“A heavyweight analysis of the Latin American pension revolution, which raises important questions about the optimal scale of compulsory saving when redesigning pension systems.”—Paul Wallace,The Economist
“Although it maintains the fundamental principles of Averting the Old Age Crisis, published by the World Bank in 1994, Keeping the Promise takes a fresh look at the outcome of structural pension reforms implemented in 12 Latin American countries during the 1990s, and proposes new, sometimes bold policies. This is an important and controversial book that must be read by experts on pensions, social security, and Latin America.”—Carmelo Mesa-Lago, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Economics and Latin American Studies, University of Pittsburgh

Book Description World Bank Publications, United States, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Empirical analysis of two decades of pioneering pension and social security reform in Latin America and the Caribbean shows that much has been achieved, but that critical challenges remain. In tackling this unfinished agenda, a great deal can be learned from the reform experience of countries in the region. Keeping the Promise, produced by the chief economist s office in the Latin America and Caribbean Region at the World Bank, evaluates policy reforms in 12 countries, points to successes and shortcomings, and proposes priorities and options for future reform. Keeping the Promise provides a timely assessment of two decades of pension reform experience-with a wealth of new data, and empirical evaluation of reformed social security systems. Many economists and policymakers will not be persuaded by some of the main conclusions and recommendations-such as the supposed failure to increase coverage, and the call for strengthening a pay-as-you-go defined-benefit scheme for poverty prevention-but they will welcome the book s critical appraisal. This is required reading for pension specialists and policymakers in Latin America and beyond. -Klaus Schmidt-Hebbel, Chief of Economic Research, Central Bank of Chile A heavyweight analysis of the Latin American pension revolution which raises important questions about the optimal scale of compulsory saving when redesigning pension systems. -Paul Wallace, The Economist.
