As policymakers debate Social Security reform, the range of pension reforms in the Americas offers many lessons. Chile’s pension reform is now in its twenty-fifth year, and other reforms in the region are at least a decade old. These reforms give researchers a substantial body of data to analyze in evaluating pension reforms in terms of efficiency and equity. At this conference, leading experts on pensions will present their research and discuss the lessons of pension reform in the Americas.
