Reciprocity Across the Life Cycle - Volume 2 -

Issue 1 - 2021

John Hills was an active participant in planning this issue of the Review, and would as a matter of course have written one of the papers, given his important body of work on pensions, including as one of the three Commissioners of the influential UK Pensions Commission which reported in 2005, and his book, Good Times, Bad Times: The Welfare Myth of Them and Us (revised edition 2017) all of which bore directly on reciprocity across the life cycle.


John’s early death in December 2020 robbed readers of what would have been a deeply enlightening and humane paper, and robbed the authors of the other papers in this issue – and the much wider community at LSE and outside – of an inspirational colleague and friend.


This issue is dedicated to his memory.
