New Report Explores the Idea of a 21st Century Personal Pension

The annual CRI Policy Innovation Forum held in November 2021 convened U.S. and international thought leaders to discuss the challenges of designing retirement solutions for generating and securing reliable lifetime income. The Forum examined how to mitigate major risks to retirement income and the experiences of other nations. This report summarizes the ideas discussed, and highlights research papers chosen in a Forum-related Call for Papers. The CRI thanks the Berggruen Institute for its generous support of the Forum and this report.
