Individual accounts for social security reform : international perspectives on the U.S. debate by John A Turner( )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A concise, readable, knowledgeable overview of the workings of individual account programs in a wide range of countries. The author expertly examines these plans' risks, concluding that plans "carved out" of existing social security systems are generally less desirable than those which "add on" to existing plans--because they shift too much risk to individuals, do not seem to boost savings rates, and are plagued by numerous easy-to-overlook problems
Imagining the ideal pension system : international perspectives by Dana M Muir( )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Longevity policy : facing up to longevity issues affecting social security, pensions, and older workers by John A Turner( )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John A. Turner makes the case that longevity policy should be recognized as a distinct area - as we do now for climate change. Instead of treating issues relating to older age, Social Security, and pensions separately, he says, we need to recognize the interrelationships among these areas and adopt a unified approach toward policy. Doing so, Turner argues, would make for a more effective and efficient policymaking
Pension policy : the search for better solutions by John A Turner( )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Identifies the current problems facing pension policy for U.S. employer-provided pension plans and recommends solutions to those problems based on his examination of pension systems in other industrialized nations. From publisher description
Sustaining social security in an era of population aging by John A Turner( )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social Security currently lacks the financing to pay for benefits already promised and the Congressional Budget Office projects that insolvency will occur in 2031. While many proposals for fixing the system have been floated, most are little more than bandages that stem the bleeding but fail to address the underlying malady. As John A. Turner points out in this book, "[T]he fundamental problem is that the current demographic era where the old-age dependency ratio (the ratio of Social Security beneficiaries to covered workers) is increasing, the Social Security benefit formula causes benefits to grow faster than the tax revenues that finance them." While seemingly a problem of demographics (which can't be fixed), Turner argues that the solution to the long-term health of Social Security lies in politically-acceptable periodic reforms of the formula used to determine benefits. Specifically, he endorses a set of reforms that address increased life expectancy, the growing relationship between income and life expectancy, the decline in the physical demands of jobs, the rise in income inequality, and the increasing poverty seen among the older population. --

Turner) explores the problems of macroeconomic instability, job turnover, job and earnings instability, and unemployment and considers why job insecurity has increased.

"Health and Coverage at Risk" (Robert B. Friedland, Laura Summer, Sophie M. Korczyk, and Douglas E. Hyatt) describes the U.S. and Canadian health systems and discusses risks associated with both. "Risk Sharing through Social Security Retirement Income Systems" (John A. Turner) addresses risk bearing in retirement income systems and compares risk sharing through social security. "Risk Bearing in Individual and Occupational Pension Plans" (James E. Pesando, John A. Turner) reviews individual and occupational pension plans in Canada, tax treatment of pensions in both countries, and the risk-bearing aspects of both countries' occupational pension systems.

Social security and pension reform international perspectives( )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reforms to social security and pension systems are being undertaken in a variety of nations around the world, not just in Europe and North America. Many of these nations are motivated by aging population and declining birth rates, but reforms are also occurring because of economic development, particularly in areas such as China, the Americas, and parts of Africa. This book provides a detailed overview of many such reforms occurring in nations around the world, and should prove to be an oft-used resource for anyone interested in how social security and voluntary and employer-provided pension systems are evolving in differing regions and economic systems."
Pension policy for a mobile labor force by John A Turner( Book )

7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyzes what happens to the pension benefits of workers who quit or are laid off jobs. The first chapter reviews the connection between job mobility and pension portability. Chapter 2 portrays a labor market undergoing changes that often result in reductions in retirement benefits. Chapter 3 describes job change further by examining data on workers by industry and the particular impact of mobility on women's pension benefits. Chapter 4 investigates size of consequent losses. Chapter 5 examines receipt and subsequent use of preretirement lump sum distributions. Chapter 6 discusses issues concerning the pension benefits of laid-off workers. Chapter 7 describes pension plan features that already reduce portability losses. Chapter 8 debates the pros and cons of pension portability reform in five areas: equity, tax and budget policy, regulation, economic effects, and financial responsibility. Chapter 9 describes and evaluates policy options designed to reduce portability losses. Chapter 10 examines how policies mandating portability would affect employers and workers and surveys studies relating pensions and job change. Chapter 11 examines the role of layoffs in portability losses. Chapter 12 discusses policies toward pension portability in Canada, Japan, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. Chapter 13 concludes the book with a selective list of policies that would reduce the pension benefit losses of job changers. (Appendixes include an index.) (Contains 164 references.) (YLB)

Globalisation and Korean foreign investment by John A Turner( )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Addressing a previously ignored area, this text analyses two converging factors: globalisation and Korean foreign direct investment policy. It looks at the emergence of the Korean government's globalisation objectives, and at the response of the chaebol, the business groups that brought about their country's rapid industrialisation. The chapters reveal a complex story with political as well as economic dimensions. They also note the impact of the 1997 crisis, and the growing importance of inward investment. The book, therefore, covers developments in Korean economic policy from the Chun-Roh regime to the Kim Dae-Joong era."--Provided by publisher
