Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Why is the EU policy apparatus framing the issue in a way that makes pension privatization the natural outcome and forces any other policy proposal to be argued against the grain?

Are they even aware of their framing? I'm sure if pressed they'd claim to be technocratic and politically neutral.

By laying out pros and cons we risk inducing people to join the debate, and losing control of a process that only we fully understand. - Alan Greenspan
