The intensity of the recent debate over reforming the Social Security system shows how sensitive Americans are to changes in pension coverage. Pension coverage, in fact, may be a factor shaping employment decisions. In a new paper commissioned for Hudson Institute’s Center for Employment Policy, Professor David Macpherson of Florida State University, the author of numerous articles, analyzes pension coverage in the U.S. economy and shows how it varies between large and small firms. What is the trend in pension coverage at small and large firms? What kinds of pensions are offered by firms of different sizes?
The Honorable Steven Law, Deputy Secretary, U.S. Department of Labor, delivered a keynote address exploring the U.S. government policy with pensions.
Dr. John Turner, Senior Policy Advisor, Public Policy Institute, AARP, and Paul Lawrence, Managing Director, Lawrence Financial Services, Inc. and CFO of Campania Insurance Group, Radtek Corporation, and Handyman Concrete, commented on Prof. Macpherson’s research.
