Abstract

Cette brochure s'intéresse aux choix qui doivent être faits lors de la création de régimes de retraite, et en particulier à l'opportunité d'abandonner les régimes publics par répartition au profit de régimes par capitalisation, qu'ils soient privés ou publics. Elle se penche sur les raisons expliquant les controverses qui entourent l'élaboration des régimes de retraite, et sur la question de savoir si le deuxième pilier des régimes de pension doit être obligatoire, privé, financé par répartition ou par capitalisation, est fondé sur des contributions définies.

During the past decade, several advanced economies have taken a new approach to the age-old problem of controlling inflation through monetary policy known as "inflation targeting." This pamphlet explains the requirements of putting the new policy in place, the experience of the countries that have tried it, and whether it has applicability to developing countries.
