CEDA's next policy perspective examines the role of government in helping Australians plan and save for retirement and the economic impacts of Australia's ageing population.

Speakers

Professor Rodney Maddock, Adjunct Professor in Economics, Monash University Vice Chancellor's Fellow, Victoria University
Patricia Faulkner AO, Former Chair of the Board, Superpartners

Event overview

Australia's ageing population has been an area of growing concern for governments. The latest Intergenerational Report predicts the number of working age persons for very person over 65 ( the dependency ratio) will almost halve over the next 40 years, creating an expected rise in the expenditure on the age pension.

What remains unclear and rarely debated however is, is whether or not there is actually a role for the government to play in helping Australians plan and save for retirement.

This event will bring together key thought leaders in the superannuation sector to discuss:

  • Market Failure and the retirement income system;
  • Alternatives to the current retirement system; and
  • Living asset poor in retirement.

All attendees will receive a copy of CEDA's policy perspective The super challenge of retirement income policy.
