Présentation de l'éditeur

1930 : l. a. IIIe République instaure un système obligatoire de retraites par capitalisation. 1941 : une loi de Vichy officialise sa transformation en un régime " par répartition " calqué sur les " chaînes d'argent " de l'escroc Charles Ponzi. los angeles IVe République entérine l'opération et laisse se multiplier les régimes catégoriels, inadaptés aux modifications économiques et sociales.

Elle s'appuie sur ses 133 000 membres pour convaincre les Français comme les responsables politiques de l'urgence d'engager cette réforme structurelle du système de retraites.
