The article discusses the experiences of other countries to assess the likely impact of British legislation that will require the auto-enrollment of employees into pension schemes. Political consensus is cited as a major factor in the success of pension reforms in countries such as Australia and New Zealand. Employers in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Poland are required to put in sizeable contributions to their employees' pensions. The introduction of a financial product called nest pensions in Great Britain is also discussed.
