Retirement Conference

John Daley and David Knox: Retirement policy and the economic environment

Superannuation is a key part of retirement incomes policy – but just one part. This session looks at the purposes of the system. What does an “adequate” retirement income mean? Is the Australian system delivering enough income in retirement, and will it be able to do so in future? In the light of early access to retirement, we must even ask the question, are superannuation contributions still appropriate in the short run?
