The Transformation of the American Pension System: Was it Beneficial for Workers?

Edward N. Wolff

Wolff examines whether the switch to Americans having predominantly defined contribution pension plans, from traditional defined benefit contribution plans, is good for workers.

The share of Americans with defined contribution pension plans now exceeds the share of those with defined benefit plans. Wolff referes to this as the "great transformation" and it leads him to examine recent evidence to see whether there are winners and losers resulting from this switch away from traditional pension plans.
