ejinsight (10.01.2019) Much has been written about the “future of work,” and much of it makes for gloomy reading. Study after study predicts that automation will upend entire industries and leave millions unemployed. A 2013 paper by two Oxford professors even suggested that machines could replace 47 percent of jobs in the United States within “a decade or two.”

OECD (2018) The positive impacts of social protection on reducing poverty and inequality and contributing to development are well evidenced. Establishing an integrated system facilitates the provision of a social protection floor, whereby individuals are appropriately protected throughout the life cycle. This is achieved not only by making sure there is a sufficient range of programmes to cover a population’s risk profile but also by sharing information on different individuals to ensure they are linked to an appropriate programme. The Social Protection System Review is one of a small number of tools that serve to analyse how effective a country is in establishing a social protection system that responds to the needs of its people both today and in the future. The toolkit presents methodologies which can be implemented in any country, at any income level and by any institution.

Estos créditos cubren el desfase entre lo recaudado por cotizaciones y lo pagado en pensiones para las pagas de verano y Navidad. Así evitan que se agote el Fondo de Reserva. Nadie quiere ser el ministro que pase a la historia por vaciar el Fondo: lo evitó Fátima Báñez, ministra de Trabajo del PP, y le sigue Magdalena Valerio, su sucesora.

London Evening Standard (10.01.2019)  A new year means a new start as millions of us make resolutions for the coming 12 months - putting self care at the top of our agenda.
