The Politics of Parliamentary Pensions in Western Democracies : Understanding Mps' Self-Imposed Cutbacks, Hardback Book

The Politics of Parliamentary Pensions in Western Democracies : Understanding Mps' Self-Imposed Cutbacks Hardback

Description

The author takes a close look at the politics of parliamentary pensions in Australia, Austria, Canada, and Germany and enlightens the reasons of self-imposed cuts by Members of Parliament.

Members of Parliament in western democracies have been under growing pressure since they legislated first retrenchments of national social security systems.

They are in a special situation because they have to decide about their own financial situation as well.

Thus, it is surprising that they cut their own pension benefits in recent years.

The book shows that the self-imposed cuts by Members of Parliament were related to public pension reforms but, in general, were less substantial.
