Social Security

During and after her career as a global market analyst, Herma Koornwinder gave numerous warnings, both in the media and at conferences and seminars on the potential demise of the Dutch social security system and the (im)possibility of pension funds to commit to future obligations.

Behind the system of Mrs Koornwinder, a firm belief is hidden. She explains: ‘We have a major problem in the Netherlands. It has become evident that the breakdown of our social security system has begun. There is reason to wonder if the pension funds will have enough financial means in the future to fulfil their obligations.

‘In addition, we will be increasingly active on the digital highway. I believe that our country does not worry enough about a jobless society. The increasing possibilities in the field of automation will lead to a major loss of jobs in the service industry. Routine actions and thinking will be taken over by computers. In addition, certain activities will be outsourced to low-income countries. All of this is possible thanks to the modern means of communication. The question remains if the huge loss of jobs will be affordable in the near future. My vision is that global investment, and especially active investment, gives the financial power to fund the jobless society. Otherwise we will not be able to afford the ageing nor the unemployment.’

Investors are overwhelmed and investment bodies and pension funds are performing badly. We have a big problem in the Netherlands. It has become evident that the breakdown of our social security system has begun. There is reason to wonder if the pension funds will have enough financial means to fulfil their obligations.

I believe that our country does not worry enough about a jobless society. The increasing possibilities in the field of automation, will lead to a major loss of jobs in the service industry. Routine actions and thinking will be taken over by computers. In addition, certain activities will be outsourced to low-income countries. All of this is possible thanks to the modern means of communication. The question remains if the huge loss of jobs will be affordable in the near future.
