José Piñera: Press Conference and CEQLS Lecture, Conservative Institute, Bratislava, September 11, 2008

José Piñera is fully dedicated to promote and share his paradigm of personal retirement accounts around the world as a President of The International Center for Pension Reform. Dr. Piñera holds a Master (1972) and Ph.D. (1974) degree in Economics from Harvard University, and is a Distinguished Senior Fellow of the Cato Institute, Co-Chairman of its Project on Social Security Choice, and Board member of both its Trade and Global Prosperity Centers.

As Chile's Minister of Labor and Social Security (1978-1980), José Piñera was responsible for the Social Security Act of 1980, that created a fully funded pension system based on personal retirement accounts and allowed workers to choose a private health option, and for the Labor Code of 1979, that re-introduced trade union democracy and decentralized collective bargaining.

He is the author of nine books and numerous essays (more can be found here).
