Mussolini the Provident and Prudential

Was the Duce the first man to give Italians pensions?

From: Mussolini Also Did A Lot of Good


This chapter examines Mussolini’s regime’s activity in the fields of social security and in labour issues. The author refutes the idea that Mussolini was the first man to give Italians pensions, looking at the history of pension systems in Europe and specifically Italy, and looking at actual measures imposed by Mussolini.
