This section contains articles on pensions policy written by Tony in 1999-2001. These were posted on his website at the time but otherwise mainly unpublished. Much of their content is relevant to the current debate on the future of state and occupational pensions. Please choose an article from the Pensions menu above.
You can also read Tony’s booklet ‘Our Pensions’, written in response to the June 1996 Labour Party policy document Security in Retirement. Its purpose, as explained in the introductory chapter, was “to suggest an alternative approach to the problem of providing – and paying for – adequate pensions, in both the short and long terms.”
