Re: How do people prepare for their pensions?

You can have your cake and eat it (in Switzerland at least). Live for today, but cheaply.
The Swiss AHV has lost real value over the last 40 years and probably will continue to do so. It is no longer something that would afford you a basic retirement in Switzerland and comfortable retirement abroad. However the social net will pay the bills if you are short, you just do not get to decide where you live.
As to what are good investments; your children, teach them well. If you don't, they will teach you (Apologies to CS&N).
