Youth and Social Security Coverage in Brazil  [PDF]
Paulo Tafner, Carolina Botelho
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2014.21014
Abstract: Brazil is still a young country, just starting the process of aging, but Brazils spending on social security is similar to those countries whose population aging has already occurred. Some studies explain the high cost of the Brazilian Social Security System due to the assumption that there is a positive relationship between social security and poverty alleviation. In fact, the effectiveness of this instrument as reducing poverty was high until 2002, but stopped growing and fell slightly thereafter. Brazilian law provides that wives and children or stepchildren under age 21, or under 25, since they are college students, are welfare beneficiaries. In other words they are protected by Brazilian Social Security System. However, data reveals that in Brazil, children and young people have a very low social security direct coverage, which increases with age and reaches high levels for individuals aged 60 or older. Children and young people are the groups most affected by poverty and extreme poverty in Brazil. In this sense, the assumption according to which Social Security helps combat family poverty is flawed. Considering these issues, this article aims to contribute to the debate on the need to rethink the Brazilian Social Security System and the need of construction of specific policies for children and young people in Brazil.

Abstract: to discuss the availability of food in brazil, based on, and associating to data from scientific literature. this is the first of six articles, discussing the determining factors and the resulting ones of food and nutritional security, and brazil's conditions related to them. the same pattern is observed in all articles, considering: (i): the concept/factor to be studied, (ii): the form to measure that factor; (iii): a brazilian characterization on the subject; (iv): global and interrelated conclusions; (v): final considerations, leading to the factor's implications in important strategies that should be formulated. brazil is a country in which food availability does not constitute a limiting factor of its food and nutritional security. in spite of this, the sustainability of food availability and the inequality are factors that are jeopardizing the national nutritional system.

Abstract: this paper evaluates the equality of the brazilian system of pensions paid in rural areas during the 1990s. the equality implies equal access to the social security benefits, regardless ethnic, sex and education differences among retired persons. basing on 1988 federal constitution, laws 8,212 and 8,213, both from 1991, have instituted the old age pension equal to one minimum wage for men (60 years or older) and for women (55 years or older) if they can prove they were rural workers. these old citizens can retire without any contribution to the social security system. the new norms were important in rural areas because they guarantee equal rights among men and women and increased the value of pensions. using 1992, 1996 and 1999 pnad microdatas organized in tables, this paper pointed out that the social security system contributed for the per capita income growth of elderly retired people who lives in rural areas, without enlarging the income distribution inequality. pnad microdatas organized in tables also indicate that males, white people, and those with higher formal education had an easier access to pension than females, black people and those with lower formal education. these results were confirmed by the probit model estimated. the paper finishes with some suggestions to improve the equality of pensions paid in rural areas.

Revista Contabilidade & Finan?as , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/s1519-70772006000500005
Abstract: Este artigo apresenta uma proposta de reforma da previdência social brasileira. O novo sistema está fundamentado nos princípios de justi a atuarial, incentivo à formaliza o, universaliza o e simplifica o da estrutura previdenciária. Foi calculada a alíquota de contribui o necessária a esse sistema. Também é estimado o passivo previdenciário, na situa o atual e no sistema proposto. Finalizando, é calculado o custo de transi o entre os dois sistemas. Os resultados mostram que esse custo é elevado, embora esteja distribuído ao longo do tempo. This article presents a proposal to reform Brazil's pension system. The new system is based on the principles of actuarial fairness, incentive to formalization, universalization and simplification of the social security structure. We calculated the contribution rate needed to balance the system. The social security debt is also estimated in the present situation and in the proposed system. Finally, the transition cost of shifting to the new system is calculated. The results show that, although,distributed over time, this cost is high.

iBusiness (IB) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ib.2014.62008

This is an article review of state-of-the-art about Mexicans’ migration to the USA, in last 5 years. We analyzed 4 myths: 1). Migration generates negative effects for the receiving country because when migrants arrive. 2). Mexicans’ migration to the USA generates big distortions in the receiving communities and Mexico is the only economic beneficiary. 3). Migrants collapse public health services in USA. 4). Mexican migrants are mistreated by American authorities. The findings will show the lack of empirical evidence of these generalized ideas.

Social Security, Retirement and Economic Growth  [PDF]
Kuo-Ting Hua
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2018.815214

Population aging alters decisions of retirement and intergenerational transfers simultaneously. With the consideration of both decisions, this paper investigates the economic impacts of population aging in an Overlapping-Generation (OLG) model under social security coverage. Results show that the economy grows slower with voluntarily increased elderly labor supply than otherwise. Ignoring the interactions between these decisions may lead to a serious mis-estimation. Results also show that mandatory postponing retirement creates disincentive to saving and hinders the economy. To prevent the economy from slowing down and fertility from falling, mandatory postponing retirement must be accompanied by a lower replacement ratio.
