Pitiful pensions – a threat to democracy
"Pitiful pensions – a threat to democracy"

"the Debaters: Not sustainable that it is worth increasingly less to work,"

"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."

"the DEBATE. The problem with januariöverenskommelsen are not the only parts of the content but also what it not contains. It presents no clear intention or proposal to meet the major challenges that must be addressed for the policy to get back the confidence of broad groups. "

"The established political parties' problems, and one due to The sweden democrats won big successes is that trust in politics and society krackelerar. And it depends among other things on what has happened and is happening with the pensions. Pension in Sweden, both the government and the contract, provides a level substantially lower than in the other nordic countries."

"How then is pensionsläget? Despite the objective of the government when income-based pension would provide 60 per cent of the slutinkomsten in the pension, the youngest ålderskullarna as now retired, not even 50 per cent. It says Daniel Barr, the director general of the Authority. "

"Tjänstemannafacken see the problem. With a pension contribution at effectively 17 per cent, it is; ”difficult not to say impossible, in the long term to maintain the credibility of the system, ” write the presidents of the big tjänstemannaorganisationerna. "

"the Pension system would be autonomous in relation to the policy to protect public finances, but was it so? "

"It is not possible to specify how high pension that is required or which pension individuals will have no reasonable control over the livsarbetstiden in relation to life expectancy, but also not without the control of and taking into account the migration. The financial stability, or rather instability, also have an impact on pensions. "

"the Parties behind the januariöverenskommelsen want to talk with the parties on the labour market on the deterioration of inter alia the labour code. We suggest, instead, conversation about significantly better pensions for increased trust and security in Sweden."

"The decisive factors"

"A pension scheme - which means declining reimbursement, which pays increasingly less to work, who converted from protection of loss of income to the basic pension is not sustainable in the long term. The good news is that we are living longer after retirement, the bad that the current pension system provides many years after retirement – with very low income. "

"the Ceiling in the when income-based pension should be raised considerably so that it provides a good income protection for more full-time employees with regular incomes, such as teachers, construction workers, specialist nurses and industrial workers. "

"Our suggestion is that pension contributions are raised, so that the average state pension is situated on well over 60 per cent in relation to previous salary, and with avtalspensionen an ordinary wage earners are getting a pensionstrygghet at well over 70 per cent and at the level of the best countries in the EU. "

"Three questions arise:"

"the Parties behind the reform of the pension system during the 1990s did not anticipate the liberalisation of the economy would lead to greater inequality, to the dissemination of health and income in the population, and to financial instability. "

"Januariöverenskommelsen will, we fear, does not lead to a smaller and more powerless in the SD. Support for democracy depends not primarily on the idea in its own right is so compelling. Support for democracy to be earned. If this system no longer delivers prosperity and fairness, if the key contracts with the citizens is broken, then will also trust and support for democracy to fail."

"decisive action now for better pensions, has the immediate effect of increasing confidence in the future and between people."

"Dan Andersson, independent investigator and former LO-ekonomnBo Bernhardsson, former member of parliament (S) and a member of the finance committee."
