    Too often, the debate about retirement security reform in the United States has taken place in a vacuum, as if it is only an American problem.  Yet, many other developed, industrial countries face similar pension reform challenges.   Some of these countries have been successful in overcoming these challenges, some have not, and for others, the results are not yet conclusive.  In any event, this panel seeks to undertake a thorough comparison of pension law reform ideas in four different countries and one political unit: the United States, Canada, France, Belgium, and the European Union.  The hope is that the participants can help one another, and each others’ countries, find new solutions to the old problem of pension law reform.
