Abstract: Most public old-age pension schemes around the world are based on the pay-as-you-go defined benefit (PAYGO DB) model. As these schemes have matured and some of the limitations of this model have become more salient, pension experts have begun considering alternative models. The notional defined contribution (NDC) model has emerged as one of the major new models. This paper has three goals: (1) to provide a brief history of pension policy in China, (2) to describe the core elements of the NDC model, and (3) to assess the relative merits of the NDC alternative as a possible option for China. For China the NDC's mechanisms for dealing with population aging and regional differences in wage levels would be definite strengths, particularly in light of the projected consequences of the nation's one child policy. The transparency of the NDC model would be advantageous given China's corruption problems and the de facto partial default in connection with the prior enterprise based pay-as-you-go defined benefit scheme. The NDC model provides an incentive for workers to remain in the labor force longer which would help alleviate the nation's projected dependency burden, but at the cost of exacerbating another problem, the high unemployment rates among young workers. The fear that the NDC model might contribute to higher unemployment rates among younger worker indirectly contributing to labor unrest and political instability could by itself make the model politically unacceptable to Chinese policy makers.

Abstract: The Open University’s circuit of culture model, which comprises a melding of critical/cultural and postmodern perspectives, encompasses five central discursive “moments”: regulation, production, consumption, representation, and identity. This study examines the World Health Organization’s smallpox eradication campaign through the moment of identity to inform our understanding of international public relations practice and theory. The authors gathered data from a wide variety and in-depth collection of materials, allowing a number of emic perspectives to emerge. The model informs theory by recasting identity as a central, discursive concept within public relations that problematizes not only the organizational identity of WHO and the target publics of the campaign but even the identity of the issue itself. Just what was smallpox? How did its multiple, often conflicting identities inform the public relations aspects of the campaign? And how can the insights from the campaign extend and develop international public relations theory?
