Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The funds are run by the unions, and as it was explained to me it's a pension savings scheme, not the pay-as-you-go scheme. I can of course have been misinformed. You also, maybe most relevant to this debate, seem to have a choice of which fund you use.

The public pension system (which, after having checked it, I see still dominates: more than half of money paid) is pay-as-you-go, the other two are funded. (Why does this count for the argument, BTW?) The mandatory occupational funds, being mandatory and occupational, methinks aren't up for choice, only the smallest element, the individual pensions are.
