Inherent weaknesses in the pay-as-you-go system and political expediencies, which contributed to the problems in the pension system, necessitated pension reforms. In 1981, Chile pioneered the pension reforms. These reforms were radical and had far-reaching consequences. The countries that had never reformed their pension systems due to a myriad of problems started emulating the Chilean Pension Model. Since then this model has been attracting lots of interest all over the world.

Pedagogical Objectives:

    To understand the inherent weaknesses in the pay-as-you-go pension system, the economic implications of pension system and how Chile successfully transformed the existing pension system to emerge as an example for rest of the world.
