The private affairs of public pensions in South Africa : debt, development and corporatization

Author

Hendricks, Fred

Description

The apartheid government in South Africa converted its pension system for public sector employees from a pay-as-you-go scheme to a fully funded one. This paper explains the reasons for this change and explores the consequences of this decision and the inadequacy of the social policy responses of the democratic government.
