It is an honour and a pleasure to be asked to participate in a Festschrift in Professor George F. Rohrlich's honour. Professor Rohrlich had a profound effect on my life. I was in my second and final year of the Master in Social Work Programme at the University of Chicago's School of Social Service Administration, when I took Rohrlich's course in Comparative Approaches to Social Security. He not only kindl‐ed what has become my lifelong desire to study social security institutions, but he also convinced me that if I aspired to be a first‐rate social policy analyst and planner (which from my perspective meant that if I aspired to be a first‐rate social work practitioner in that area), I would have to become a competent economist along the way. What is more, he told me he had every confidence that I could do it. Hearing this from a man who by then was a father figure to me gave me sufficient faith in myself to try.
