A review of retirement with regard to distributive justice suggests that the possibility of ‘over-grazing’ in the fiscal commons can be addressed by the imposition of an appropriate intergenerational risksharing mechanism, such as the ‘Musgrave rule’, which requires an invariant ratio of worker to retiree income (Schokkaert and Van Parijs 2003).
