THE CHALLENGES OF A LONG-LIVING SOCIETY

The interlocutors will open the following questions at the symposium:

  1. How to find a new social consensus regarding the financing of expenditures related to the aging of the population? Does politics have enough trust and how can the professional public contribute to the formation of social consensus? Are partial solutions the right way or do we need a comprehensive approach to a changed way of financing a long-lived society?
  2. What are the limits of Bismarck’s social security system? Is the answer a changed ratio of tax inflows between labor and capital? Is there room for property taxation? To what extent can productivity growth also be the answer?
  3. What kind of pension system do we need after 2030?
  4. Health and long-term care – what funding model would be most appropriate?
