IFS Zooms In: The Economy


The future of public sector pensions

Season 3, Ep. 13

In an era where those in the private sector have seen their pension provision decrease, pensions in the public sector continue to look generous.

But is this sustainable? Should we change the balance between pay and pensions for those in the public sector? What does the future hold for public sector pensions?

This week, we speak to Lord Hutton of Furness, cabinet minister in the last Labour government and leader of the Independent Public Service Pensions Commission, a review into public sector pensions commissioned by David Cameron, and by Carl Emmerson, IFS Deputy Director and expert on pensions.
