The use of market forces in social security: How insurance-like should social insurance be?

Norberg, Per LU (2013) In Normative Patterns and legal development in the social dimension of the EU. p.161-184
Abstract
In this chapter two examples are presented were the Swedish legislator built market mecanisms into the unemployment insurance system and the pension system. The two market mecanisms were designed to make trade unions with high unemployment show restraint in collective wage bargaining and to make elderly people chose two postpone retirement. The aim of the legislation was to make the opposite choice costly. The chapter discusses the benefits and problems involved in using market mechanisms to acheive a certain goal, compared to norm oriented legal solutions for instance forbidding persons to retire before a certain age.
