Roberto Gallardo del Ángel, « A Microeconometric Analysis on the Pension Reforms in Argentina, Bolivia, Mexico and Uruguay », Economía: teoría y práctica, ID : 10670/1.5523u3
This paper contains information about workers' participation in the pension schemes in four Latin American countries which carried out structural pension reforms in 1990's. It surveys some interesting hypotheses about the main causes that discourage participation in the new pension scheme. The main finding is that the present participation structure is strongly influenced by labor market characteristics like low-productivity and informal jobs.
