The federal government wants to contribute to the stabilization of the statutory pension insurance with income from capital investments. Initially, ten billion euros are to be invested in an equity fund.
Green MP Frank Bsirske spoke out against Lindner's plans to also invest contribution money in stock pensions in the future. "Speculating on credit is dangerous. Speculating with citizens' pension insurance contributions is at least as dangerous," said Bsirske on ARD.
