Interest in resilience has been rising rapidly among policymakers over the last twenty years as a response to increasing uneasiness about potential shocks that test the limits of coping capacities of both individuals and societies. In all likelihood, such shocks will keep emerging and will present continuous challenges around the world, from the digital transformation to food security.

Pensioners who live in countries with a high standard of living experience lower levels of economic wellbeing

A new Finnish doctoral thesis has argued that pensioners who live in countries with a high standard of living experience lower levels of income sufficiency.

 

The thesis, compiled by Liisa-Maria Palomäki at the University of Turku, and brought to light by The Finnish Centre for Pensions, maintains that pensioners in countries with a high standard of living feel less able to make ends meet than those who live in countries with a lower standard of living.

 

Palomäki estimated that the difference may be linked to the expectations on consumption created by those different standards of living. According to Palomäki, income distribution within a country does not have any bearing on pensioners’ evaluation of income adequacy.
