PBS News Weekend

Season 1, Episode 20 of 99

On Sunday, as cities and states across the U.S. grapple with their pension programs, we travel to one country -- The Netherlands -- that seems to have its pension problem solved. Ninety percent of Dutch workers get pensions, and retirees can expect roughly 70% of their working income paid to them for the rest of their lives. Olaf Sleijpen of the Central Bank of the Netherlands says "I think what makes it successful is that you basically force people to save for their old age." That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.
