Review(s) from previous edition"Here is the best guide to the turmoil into which European pensions are being plunged. At last, a book that provocatively recasts the debate, written by first-class experts, who expose the complex political and financial dimensions of an issue that, in the long run, is central to all of us in later life. - Rt. Hon. Frank Field , Member of the UK Parliament, Chairman of the Pensions Reform Group
