Philip Booth explains his book on pensions (this can be downloaded from the IEA website iea.org.uk), which surveys the results of government intervention in the market for retirement income provision throughout the world. He starts by looking at high-income democracies in which governments have, to a large degree, taken over the function of providing pensions. He finds that state provision crowds out private provision and places a considerable fiscal burden on developed country governments. This fiscal burden is then combined with complex regulatory systems that are imposed on the private sector and which make pensions incomprehensible.
