PeRCent Annual Conference 2022
PeRCent will host its eighth annual conference on September 6, 2022 at Copenhagen Business School, Solbjerg Plads 3, 2000 Frederiksberg, room SP202.
This year’s conference will present novel evidence on inequality in longevity and redistributional effects of the Danish pension system; theory and evidence on pensions reform and wealth inequality in Denmark; and a theoretical framework for how to think about the relationship between retirement saving and home ownership.
The keynote address will be given by Professor Axel Börsch-Supan, a leading expert in the field of the economics of ageing, from the Max Planck’s Society’s Institute for Social Law and Social Policy in Munich. He will talk about the challenge faced by pension policy of mastering the conflict of goals between social adequacy and financial sustainability, and he will use the back and forth of German pension reform as a case study of long-term perspectives and short-term oriented policy.
This year’s policy forum will begin by marking the launch of the book “The Danish Pension System: Design, Performance and Challenges”, published by Oxford University Press and featuring contributions by members of PeRCent. This is followed by a panel debate in Danish about the recent report and recommendation from the Danish pension commission on retirement and attrition. Panelists will represent Danish ministries, pension funds, organizations and academic institutions.
The Conference is a joint initiative between Copenhagen Business School and the Danish pension industry and is organized by Professor Svend E. Hougaard Jensen from the Department of Economics and Professor Jesper Rangvid from the Department of Finance.
