In a Europe with integrated goods and factor markets, the various national social security systems are being put under increasing pressure. The creation of the common market has changed individuals' property rights. Martin Kolmar investigates these changes in relation to the objectives of efficiency and long-term balanced growth. Of prime importance is the author's detailed analysis of the intra- and intergenerationally redistributive character of the various social security systems and his demonstration that factor mobility generates allocative inefficiencies. His analysis of different reform options and their applicability are also central to this work.
