[en] The paper analyzes the link between old-age income programs and economic outcomes in
Belgium. We use a simulation methodology to construct an average pension generosity
variable. Our regression analysis explores the link with distributional outcomes in income,
consumption and more subjective indicators. Results document the weak link between
average generosity and distributional outcomes across a heterogeneous population.
