This incredibly thorough analysis of the pension crisis, written by Josh B. McGee of the Manhattan Institute, was sent to me yesterday by Jack Dean of Pension Tsunami. Thanks to Jack, I am sharing it with you. It is the most comprehensive study I have read on the topic in a very long time.
Josh McGee covers four main categories:
The Costs of Debt,
The Reforms That Matter Most, and
Averting the Crisis.
All elected officials should read this!
Please send it to your town council members, your supervisors and your state representatives - Marc Levine and Mike McGuire. Email addresses are attached for all but your local town councils.
