Título: "Saving for retirement through the public pension system: Evidence from the self-employed in Spain"
Abstract: Abstract: Using the fact that the Spanish self-employed voluntarily choose their contributions to social security, I study the impact of financial incentives provided by pension formulas on the contribution behaviour of the self-employed in Spain. I implement a Difference-in-Difference approach comparing the behaviour of the self-employed affected by the 1997 pension reform with respect to those not affected by the reform. I find that the Spanish self-employed significantly respond to the financial incentives provided by pension formulas. However, the estimated response could be considered small relative to the magnitude of the return to contributions provided by the pension formulas in Spain.
