Abstract

In this article I argue that (1) a house is a substitute for pension savings at the individual level; (2) housing wealth is not wealth on the aggregate level; (3) ageing is not the main problem for pension systems, instead it is financialisation; and (4) policies that link pensions and housing may serve financial actors.
