The gender impact of social security reform by Estelle James( Book )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As populations age and revenues diminish, government and private pension funds around the world have become unsustainable in their present form. The looming social security crisis is especially dire for women, who live longer than men but have worked less in the formal labor force. This study examines alternative social security systems and their disparate impacts on men and women. Emphasis is placed on the new multi-pillar systems that combine a publicly managed benefit and a mandatory private retirement saving plan." "The Gender Impact of Social Security Reform compares the gendered outcomes of social security systems in Chile, Argentina, and Mexico, and presents empirical findings from Eastern and Central European transition economies as well as several OECD countries. Women's positions have improved relative to men in countries where joint pensions have been required, widows who have worked can keep the joint pension in addition to their own benefit, the public benefit has been targeted toward low earners, and women's retirement age has been raised to equality with that of men."--BOOK JACKET

Economic reforms and labor markets : policy issues and lessons from Chile by Sebastian Edwards( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper deals with the reform to labor market regulation implemented by Chile during the last twenty years. We concentrate on the reform to job security, on the decentralization of the wage bargaining process, and on the reduction in payroll taxes. Our interest is to understand to what extent these reforms helped reduce Chile's rate of unemployment from European' to U.S' levels. We argue that the reduction of payroll taxes (within the context of the social security reform), and the decentralization of bargaining increased labor market flexibility and contributed to the reduction of unemployment. Our analysis suggests that the reform on job security had no significant effect on the aggregate rate of unemployment
Social security privatization reform and labor markets : the case of Chile by Sebastian Edwards( Book )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: We analyze the way in which social security privatization reform affects labor market outcomes. We develop a model of the labor market where we assume that, as is the case in most emerging markets, a formal and an informal sectors coexist side by side. According to our model, a social security reform that reduces the implicit tax on labor in the formal sector, will result in an increase in the wage rate in the informal sector and will have an undetermined effect on aggregate unemployment. Results from simulation exercises suggest that in the case of Chile the reforms resulted in an increase in informal sector wages of approximately 2.0%. These results also suggest that the reforms made a positive, but small, contribution to the reduction of Chile's aggregate of unemployment
Labor and economic reforms in Latin America and the Caribbean by Alejandra Cox Edwards( )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past decade, most countries in the Latin America and Caribbean Region have stabilized their economies and lowered barriers to international trade. Many of the policies aimed at reducing poverty and tackling inequality in the 1960-1980 period were well intentioned, but the region made little or no progress in improving income distribution. With the recent shift toward market orientation and openness to international trade, these countries will need a new approach to labor policy as well as different instruments for addressing income distribution goals. This report gives special attention to four areas of labor policy: 1) change from direct government intervention in wage determination and strict seniority rules to a system that rewards effort, high productivity, and good management within a framework that relies on voluntary negotiation of working conditions between workers and firms; 2) replacement of job security legislation by a more effective mechanism that protects workers when they change jobs; 3) careful design of mandatory contributions to social security and other programs in order to minimize the distortionary effect of labor taxes; and 4) redirecting of government subsidies for training and education to the demand side and targeting to those who cannot afford to pay

Economic Reforms and Labour Markets : Policy Issues and Lessons from Chile( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper first provides an overview of Chile's labour market during 1966-97. It discusses the way in which regulations evolved during this period. Survey data are used to analyse the evolution of unemployment patterns. Next, the analysis deals with the major components of Chile's labour market reforms. It examines the reforms to job security legislation, the reforms to collective bargaining rules and the evolving role of unions, and the labour market consequences of the privatisation of social security. It also measures the effects of the reform package on labour market flexibility. It concentrates on their effect on the "equilibrium" rate of unemployment and on unemployment persistence.--SCAD summary
