Ed Westerhout works on pensions at CPB's sector Macroeconomic analysis. He leads several research projects in the field of pensions. Themes are the economic, generational and welfare effects of pension reform, the role of intergenerational risk sharing by pension funds and the government, the discontinuity risk inherent to pensions and the role of price index bonds for the stability of public finances. These projects are part of the Netspar theme "Multi-pillar pension schemes and macroeconomic preformance", in which CPB cooperates with the universities of Tilburg (UvT) and Amsterdam (UvA). Furthermore, Ed Westerhout participates in research projects in the fields of ageing and health care.
