In 1980-2007, 23 countries in Latin America and Eastern Europe, totally or partially privatized their former public pension systems; such structural reforms, however, endured serious flaws. Since 2008, four countries (Chile, Argentina, Bolivia and Hungary) implemented “re-reforms” that either shut down the private systems returning them to the public sphere or substantially increased the role of the state in them. The lecture will evaluate how the re-reforms have coped with such flaws based on several key social security features: coverage of the labor force, benefit sufficiency, social solidarity, gender equity, efficiency and administrative costs, workers’ participation in management, and financial sustainability. Mesa-Lago is the author of Re-Reforms of Privatized Pensions in the World: A Comparative Study of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile and Hungary (Munich: Zeitschrift für ausländisches und internationales Arbeits-und Sozialrecht, 2013).
