Ageing populations can transform the composition of an economy’s labour force and threaten the stability of its pension system.

It appears that reversing past pension reforms would be very costly and would put a disproportionate burden on current and future young generations. Even without reversals, further reforms are needed to address the adverse macroeconomic and fiscal impact of population ageing.
